Transcript VOLUHB VIII HO. 5 SEPTEMBER 1959 < ************************ •The air is now full of gracefully flying swal-« •lows. While most migrating birds fly by night* •and seek their food during the daylight hours,* •swallows travel only during the day and eon- • •gregate in numbers when roosting time comes. * •Although powerful on the wing, the northern • •breeding swallows do not attempt to cross big • •bodies of water to reach their Central and S. * •American wintering homes, but fly around the * •Gulf of Mexico via Hexico and Panama. Their * •name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon swalewe • •or swealwe. Their short weak legs are used * •only for perching; they never walk on the * •ground. The continuous twitter that we hear • •is their only song. * ************************ PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTON.
