Hi John:

No, the Trumpeter Swans are much more defensive than the Australian Black Swans, even though the Australian Black Swans are pretty defensive in their own right. The Trumpeters will and can inadvertantly and intentionally kill small waterfowl due to their inherent large size and the fact that they are very territorial. Ducks, geese and other small waterfowl can be at risk if you place the Trumpeter Swans in your habitat. The Regal Swan
