The ancient Egyptians seem to have considered the swan to be a variety of goose.
does anyone know of Amun with a swan?

A...swan?

THAT'S news to me, I've heard about him becoming a goose and emitting a loud HONK! (Thus came the "Big Bang", which I personally thought was awesome), but a swan...that's an interesting concept.

Swans and geese are very closely related. I, in some countries, that type of bird is referred to as "Swan-geese".
But I'm the same as Tut. I've never heard of the relationship with Amen and a swan--just geese.

As far as the ancient Egyptians were concerned it would still be just Amun/goose even if a modern ornithologist called it Amun/swan
