House Martin

Delichon urbicum

Description:

Small, fast-flying and lively black-and-white hirundid, and a group of its nests. We observed some 40 to 50 nests, and I would say about one fourth of them were active, with chicks inside for sure and adults flying to and fro. The rest of the nests, we saw no activity that day. The typical hirundid nests are made of mud, and look like semi-spheres attached under the roofs of farms.

Habitat:

Farms and habitations of rural Bugey, an agricultural area of rolling hills covered by mixed forests, meadows and farms.
