bird photography portfolio of swallows from the family, Hirundinidae.
Acrobatic aerial feeding characterizes all of the members of the swallow
family and if you have ever tried to photograph them flying you know that is entirely justified! Swallow
s and their kin, the Martins, occur worldwide with some 80 species in the family, Hirundidae. I'm going to have to get busy if I hope to add all of them to my avian photography portfolio. Tree Swallow

The Collective Noun for a group of swallows is a flight (duh!) or a gulp.
I lead many nature and wildlife photography workshops around the world. Some of them feature birds, and all of them are AMAZING! Hey, if I don't say it who will? You can check and decide for yourself at Wildlife Workshops
