A short check in Wikipedia brings:

Cygnus olor: Sessiz kuğu
Aythya fuligula: Tepeli patka
Fulica atra: Sakarmeke

Go to Wikipedia, choose the article in your language (eg. Blässhuhn) and change the language to Turkish (Türkçe).

Thank you, André,

I was told before:
Cygnus olor: Sessiz ördek
Aythya fuligula: Sorguclu ördek
Fulica atra: Su tavugu

Wikipedia gives other results. That is the background of my question. Are that synonyms?

According to this Cygnus olor is kuğu in Turkish, Aythya fuligula is tepeli patka and Fulica atra is sakarmeke.
