Paper Swallow

The swallow is easily recognized by its forked tail and is a true acrobat in the air. In symbolism, the swallow brings luck and freedom. Sailors used to have tattoos of swallows to show their sailing experience. When you got lost at sea and saw a swallow, you knew that you were near the coast and by following the swallow you arrived home safely.

Swallow facts:

There are around 83 species of swallows worldwide. You will find swallows around the world on all continents except Antarctica. Swallows live in a wide range of habitats, because they are dependent on flying insects and as these are common over waterways and lakes they will frequently feed over these. Swallows can also be found in any open habitat like grasslands, mangroves and scrub land, from sea level to high alpine areas. A Swallow is able to produce many different calls or songs. They use it to express excitement, to communicate with others of the same species, during courtship, or as an alarm when a predator is in the area!

The Scientific Name is Hirundinidae. Their body length varies from about 10 to 24 centimeters and their weight from aboutĀ 10 to60 grams. Their average life span in the wild is 3 years.
