...and sometimes two boys parent as a team.

Among black swans, males sometimes pair-bond with other males.  These couples tend to be successful as parents since the combined strength of two males allows the swans to maintain a larger nesting territory.  They acquire eggs to raise either by briefly forming a trio with a female or by taking over the nest of a heterosexual couple.
