Crazed What kinda Birds do you go for

For me its the Barn Swallow - now please I just love the way they seem to love flying and perform aerobatics in the sky ( probably trying to eat flies etc) but they look nice.
Pity they seem to be declining in numbers - their arrival always heralded the start of summer.

Re: What kinda Birds do you go for

That's because we eat them here in Spain when they fly south for the winter... yummy!! The brits fatten them up all year round with their bird feeders so they're nice and plump by the time they get here.

when birds fly from Ireland to S Africa, such as the swallow, do the flew continously or do the sleep along the way?
If they do sleep where or how or when do they do it, not as if they are on a plane & can catch 40 winks in a comfie seat... is it?

Got it in one. They stop along the way. The last place is Coto Donana, a huge nature reserve before making the jump across the straights of Gibraltar and deep into North Africa.

Here's some info: donana.htm
