    • His space is intruded ,he is a helpless victim to his own instinct as he feels no longer in charge,in control of his life.

    • He desires to go away alone so far that no one can track him ,think of him ,let alone see him .

    SWAN (info)

    • Swans are large, long-necked aquatic birds with short legs and webbed feet. They belong to the family Anatidae, along with the duck and goose. Swans are most closely related to geese, both groups differing from ducks anatomically and in the absence of bright or metallic colors in their plumage.

    • Noted for their graceful movements in the water, they have been the subject of many poems, fairy tales, legends, and musical compositions.
    • Swans usually pair for life, but mating habits depend on the individual swan and species. For example, whooper swans that were observed in a scientific study did not pair for life and found other mates. Males will usually not find another mate after their mate’s death, while females will continue to breed after the loss of a mate.

    • "Swans have long been renowned as symbols of lifelong fidelity and devotion," said Raoul. “But our recent work has shown that infidelity is rife among black swans.’’

    • They discovered that one out of six young cygnets raised by a pair of swans was illegitimate; a high rate for a species honoured for their apparent monogamy.

    • Dominance hierarchies and agonistic activities are important features of sociality for many animals. Dominant individuals or groups can gain greater access to scarce or valuable resources, such as food, preferred feeding or resting sites, safe refuges, and mates, than can subordinates.

    • Dominance relations and hierarchies ultimately serve to reduce the intensity and frequency of aggressive interactions, thereby providing group stability and optimizing time available for other activities.

    • Dominance hierarchies not only benefit dominant individuals, but also may benefit subordinates by reducing time spent interacting with others, thus reducing risk of injury and increasing time available for other important activities.

    WHOOPER SWAN cygnus cygnus

    The Whooper Swan has a more angular head shape and a more variable bill pattern that always shows more yellow than black (Bewick's Swans have more black than yellow).

    Their breeding habitat is wetland , and their cygnets stay with them all winter; they are sometimes joined by offspring from previous years.
    SWAN (words)

    • Dance

    • Space

    • Elegance

    • Calm

    • Trust

    • Love

    • Infidelity

    • Illegitimate

    • Alone

    • Pressurized

    • Girls treated differently

    • Rape


    • The swan is looking for the ideal love & passion that can make him free from the boundaries of self , instead finds himself trapped in a compromise of unfulfilled sexuality, unfulfilled love & a loss of boundaries where he finds himself forced to do all he does not want.

    • This compromise is out of duty & care for the children.

    • They long for love & hence infidelity & guilt are the conflicts that result .

    • Instead of the freedom & pure love which would give him an unbounded flight to new & powerful heights . He finds himself sucked powerlessly down into the dirty world of exploitation of the purity of love & sex ,world of rape, paedophilia & brutality.

    • From this he yearns for the flight of escape.

    • Dance is their expression of the freedom ,detachment & lightness.

    BLACK SWAN (cygnus atratus)
    • Black Swans' flattened bills are red and white with fine grooves that help grip the underwater plants. Their legs and webbed feet are black. They do not dive for food. Most species of swans will not allow another swan into their territory during nesting season. Black Swans are the exception and will often build their nests in colonies.

    • Once the female lays 4 to 8 pale green eggs, both parents incubate the eggs for about 35 - 40 days, with the female doing most of the nest-sitting while the male does most of the defending and chasing off of enemies.Cygnets may ride on their parent's back for longer trips into deeper water. This family unit stays together for about nine months.

    MUTE SWAN cygnus olor

    • The Mute Swan is one of the heaviest flying birds, with males (known as "cobs") averaging at about 12kg (27 lbs.), and females (known as "pens") more than 9 kg (20 lbs.).

    • Its size, orange-reddish bill and white plumage make this swan almost unmistakable. The most similar species is Whooper Swan.


    • Mute Swans nest on large mounds that they build in shallow water in the middle or at the edge of a lake. These monogamous birds reuse the same nest each year, restoring or rebuilding it as needed. Male and female swans share the care of the nest, and once the cygnets are fledged it is not uncommon to see whole families looking for food.

    • Although this bird can be tame, especially to those who feed it daily, it is aggressive in defence of its nest, and its size and impressive hissing make it a formidable adversary for animals as large as a fox.There have been many reports of Mute Swans attacking people who enter their territory. Their wings are believed to be so strong that they can break a person's arm with one hit, although the evidence for this is weak.

    • The Mute Swan is less vocal than the noisy Whooper and Bewick’s Swans.The phrase swan song refers to this swan and to the famous ancient legend that it is utterly silent until the last moment of its life, and then sings one achingly beautiful song just before dying; in reality, the Mute Swan is not completely silent.

    • Unlike Black Swans, Mute Swans are strongly territorial. The familiar pose with neck curved back and wings half raised, known as busking, is a threat display.

    DUCK (Etymology)

    • The word duck (from Anglo-Saxon dūce), meaning the bird, came from the verb "to duck" (from Anglo-Saxon supposed *dūcan) meaning "to bend down low as if to get under something", because of the way many species in the dabbling duck group feed by upending (compare the Dutch word duiken = "to dive").

    • Duck is the common name for a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than their relatives the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water.

    • The males (drakes) of northern species often have extravagant plumage, but that is moulted in summer to give a more female-like appearance, the "eclipse" plumage. Many species of ducks are temporarily flightless while moulting; they seek out protected habitat with good food supplies during this period.

    DUCKS (trivia)
    • In many areas, wild ducks of various species (including ducks farmed and released into the wild) are hunted for food or sport, by shooting. From this came the expression "a sitting duck", which means "an easy target".

    • In 2002, psychologist Richard Wiseman at the University of Hertfordshire (UK) finished a year-long LaughLab experiment, concluding that, of the animals in the world, the duck is the type that attracts most humor and silliness; he said "If you're going to tell a joke involving an animal, make it a duck."

    "Quacks like a duck"

    • The expression "quacks like a duck" is sometimes a short form for "It looks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, it swims like a duck, so it's a duck.", used as proverbial to counter abstruse arguments that something is not what it appears to be.

    DUCK (theme)

    It is trapped by it’s EGO & desire to maintain its HIGH POSITION .

    ARROGANCE , always been ahead , got attention , appreciation , has class .

    The fear is of FALLING into muck & dirt by an attack to CHARACTER .

    So to maintain this position they feel TRAPPED & BOUND into doing things which they really don’t want to .
    Bird’s Eye View

    • The different remedies within bird family express one aspect of their common conflict as their core theme .

    For eg:

    The Crow expresses the conflict of being forced to choose an urban environment .

    The Macaw expresses the way the bird’s need for a flock helplessly traps them into a bond with the human who cages them .

    The Pigeon expresses the common conflict of domesticated or trained birds for human sport as a rebellion against the control .

    The Falcon rails angrily at its own weakness or instinct that allows it to be controlled .

    Birds are long hailed as symbols of fidelity .The conflict of this is expressed prominently in swan cases .

    The Eagle expresses the desire to detach ,fly away from, rise above the human made world which traps them .

    Birds are in a flock to enhance their survival - they are forced to look after & care for each other .

    The Buteo expresses the conflict of freedom on one hand and, duty & guilt on the other
