The European swallow is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

the Barn or European Swallow (Hirundo rustica) has been studied intensively, and kinematic data for that species was readily available. He then goes on to examine weight ratios, amplitude, and airspeed to arrive at an answer that could conceivably save your life some day. Best of all, he does it in style. I loved this site four years ago when I first wrote about it, yet time has only further burnished its luster. More

What do you mean, an African or European Swallow?To begin with, I needed basic kinematic data on African and European swallow species. South African Swallow (Hirundo spilodera) European Swallow (Hirundo rustica) Although 47 of the 74 worldwide swallow species are found in Africa,1 only two species are named after the continent: the West African Swallow (Hirundo domicella) and the South African Swallow (Hirundo spilodera), also known as the South African Cave Swallow.

and amplitude (A) of the European Swallow by a comparison with similar species. With those two numbers, it will be possible to estimate airspeed (U). In order to maintain airspeed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?Actually, wrong. More

unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles per hour. Note: There are comments associated with this question. See the discussion page to add to the conversation.

The European swallow is a common sight in southern Africa, especially when they gather together during autumn, in preparation of their migratory flight back to the northern hemisphere. Other names: Afrikaans - Europese swael : Photographer: EcoTravel Africa The flocks increase in size as winter approaches, and then they seem to disappear overnight. European swallows arrive back to the southern African subregions around September. More

For a European Swallow flying with our estimated wingbeat amplitude of 24 cm, the predicted pattern of cruising flight ranges from a Strouhal number (St) of 0.2: ... to a less efficient 0.4: If the first diagram (St = 0.2) is accurate, then the cruising speed of the European Swallow would be roughly 16 meters per second (15 beats per second * 1.1 meters per beat). If the second diagram (St = 0. More

Barn or European Swallow (Hirundo rustica) has been studied intensively, and kinematic data for that species was readily available. It’s a simple question of weight ratios - A 54-year survey of 26,285 European Swallows captured and released by the Avian Demography Unit of the University of Capetown finds that the average adult European swallow has a wing length of 12.2 cm and a body mass of 20.3 grams.
