What to tell about swallows. Everybody knows swallows. They have amazing flying skills. And also nest building skills. These are the ‘welcome swallow’,
Welcome swallows are small fast-flying birds found in open country particularly around lakes, coasts, riverbeds and ponds.
Their flight is circular and darting in style, and they may be seen singly, in pairs or in flocks. Flocks often perch en masse, lined up on fences or power lines.
They were named ‘welcome swallows’ because they appeared in southern Australia as a herald of spring. Due to their elegant shape and flight, and their preference for nesting around buildings, swallows are noticed and appreciated more than most other small birds.
What do swallows eat
Swallows forage aerially for small invertebrates. They occasionally perch on plants to take insects or sweep them up from the water. Swallows often drink while flying, scooping water from the surface of a lake or pond.
