About this book

Language: French

What is happening with the swallows in France? Fewer and fewer are occupying nests in our towns and villages, let alone the large-scale gatherings on electric wires at the end of summer. What are the threats to these familiar birds?

Who has not watched out for the arrival of the first swallow in the last days of March? A symbol of migration and homefastness, they often enjoy the sympathy of the public and have adapted their way of life to ours, adopting our buildings to nest there.

Ddid you know that five species of swallows live in France and that, while some, the best known, live near humans, there are others which have not yet taken the plunge or which are still in the process of doing it ... This book invites the reader to come and meet them, to discover their secret lives and the problems they encounter, often because of our activities.

Summary in French:
Mais que se passe-t-il avec nos hirondelles ? De moins en moins de nids occupés dans nos villes et nos villages, plus de rassemblements importants sur les fils électriques à la fin de l’été. Quelles menaces pèsent donc sur ces oiseaux familiers ?

Qui n’a guetté dans les derniers jours de mars l’arrivée de la première hirondelle ? Symbole de la migration et de la fidélité, elles bénéficient le plus souvent de la sympathie du public et ont su adapter leur mode de vie au nôtre, adoptant nos constructions pour y nicher.

Mais savez-vous que vivent en France cinq espèces d’hirondelles et que, si certaines, les plus connues, vivent près de l’homme, il en est d’autres qui n’ont pas encore franchi le pas ou qui seulement sont en train de le faire… Nous vous invitons à venir faire leur connaissance, à découvrir leur intimité et les problèmes qu’elles rencontrent, le plus souvent à cause de nos activités.
