Barn Swallow

The Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world.

In Northern Europe this is the only common species called a “swallow” instead of a “martin”.

Identification Tips:
• Length: 6 inches with tiny bill
• Dark orange forehead and throat
• Pale orange underparts
• Dark, iridiscent upperparts
• Long, deeply forked tail
• Will nest communally in mud nests under bridges, in barns, etc

Similar species:
The Barn Swallow can be told from all swallows by its deeply forked tail.

There are six subspecies of Barn Swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere.

Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina, the Cape Province of South Africa, and northern Australia.

The Barn Swallow is a bird of open country which normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion.
