November 2019: Barn Swallow

Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica)

As FaunaFocus approaches the end of the year, the barn swallow will be featured throughout the month of November 2019.

The barn swallow is the most widespread swallow species and can be found in close proximity to humans all around the world. These small, distinctive, passerine birds are aerial foragers and catch their insectivorous prey while flying. Socially monogamous, they build nests and raise young in large colonies.



Create art inspired by the barn swallow and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
