There are hundreds of Mute Swans on the shores of Lake Ontario at Toronto. They are irresistibly graceful, but you wouldn't want to make one mad - they are quite aggressive and can easily injure humans or your dog!
Watching, and hearing them take off from the lake is an awesome sight. Their wingspan is enormous, and they make extremely loud wing beats. Also they are an introduced species, and are quickly displacing native species. Pretty, though.
