From these additional photos I am now pretty sure that your birds are Black Swans, given their "size" and stance.

The link below the writing is your answer to where the head is!

And to everyone else, I won't send the completely uncropped version, because I found something inappropriate on there.

The photo was taken 200 metres from where I was standing.
I don't use a camera which takes photos from far away distances so I couldn't zoom in that far.
A Black Swan is a good guess, but when I first looked at the photo I thought that they might be a smaller waterfowl.
Good guess though.
Now I'm also sending extremely cropped photos as well as a circle to show the bird with the head visible.

A very wild guess but could they be Black Swans? They do seem to have relatively long legs. Unfortunately I still can't see a head on any of the birds. How far away were they when you took the photo and do you have any indication of size say compared to
a magpie, a domestic goose or indeed a Black Swan?

The species which shows the head is third on the right.
I know this a very poor quality photo since it was taken distantly away and my camera couldn't zoom that far, so I had to crop it.
The photo was taken in June and is near Canberra, so the species should have been recorded in the ACT.

Which bird are you referring to, i.e. is it one of those obvious in the
photo (I can't see a distinct head), or is it somewhere in the
background and if so, where? Also where was the photo taken as it may
help to eliminate certain species?
