A pair of black swans found on Balboa Island is seen in a photo released by the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach on Feb. 12, 2019.

Two black swans found on Balboa Island were taken to a shelter Monday, authorities said.

A pedestrian walking a dog reported the birds to Newport Beach Animal Control, according to Newport Beach police spokeswoman Heather Rangel.

The swans, which aren’t native to the area, were transfered to the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach while officials tried to figure out where they came from, said the center’s wildlife manager, Lisa Perrone.

“We are guessing they either escaped from someplace or were dumped,” the center wrote on Facebook, describing the birds as “tame.” “Please share to help locate a possible owner.”
