Pere David’s Swan (Cygnus davidii)

First observed in 19th century China, and then again in 20th century England, it is described as “a smallish white swan with red bill and orange-yellow feet” (Fuller). Its more curious feature is the feathering between eye and bill which leads some experts to suggest that this strange little creature could be an abnormally-coloured Bewick’s swan.
