Description: The swallow is considered in all cultures form Asia, Europe and North America to bring good fortune to those lucky enough to have them nesting in their homes. Reference to the swallow's arrival have been found in the bible and on ancient Greek vases. It is a feat of navigation which is still not fully understood by scientists. Swallows’ weigh little more than 20 grams and have brains no bigger than a pea, yet they can store migration routes of over 9,500km and use the Sun, Stars and familiar landscapes to find their way and may be capable of seeing the magnetic fields of the earth to guide them on their journey home.
