Bird Families

The saddle-billed yabiru is one of the genera of the stork family


Largest wingspan ... noted in wandering albatross (Diomedea exulas). On September 18, 1965, a very old male with a wingspan of 3.63 m was caught in the Tasman Sea by the crew of the US Navy Antarctic research vessel Eltanin.

Flight speed
French researchers used a radio beacon to determine the range and speed of the flight albatross (Diomedea). It turned out that in 33 days the bird covered a distance of 15,200 km. The average flight speed was 56.1 km per hour, and the maximum speed was 81.2 km per hour.

Bird flight height

... is different. So, mallard duck collided with a plane over Nevada at an altitude of 6,900 m, and in September 1973 g. african vulture collided with a civilian plane over the African Republic of Côte d'Ivoire at an altitude of 12,150 m. November 29, 1973 over Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, vulture (Gyps ruepellii) collided with a passenger plane at an altitude of 11,277 m. The feathers remaining from the bird were enough for the American Museum of Natural History to be able to firmly identify the species of bird.

December 9, 1967 about 30 whooper swans (Cygnus cygnus) were seen at an altitude of slightly over 8,230 m. They flew from Iceland for the winter to Loch Foyle, on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The aircraft pilot spotted them over the Outer Hebrides and their altitude was confirmed by radar.

Fastest flyer

Observations confirm that peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) is capable of reaching a maximum speed of up to 200 km / h when he throws himself like a stone down from a great height, defending his territory or hunting birds in the air.

At high altitude, at an aircraft speed of 700 km per hour, a bird the size of a goose strikes three times harder on collision than a projectile from a 30 mm cannon.

Flight speed (km / h)Peregrine falcon flies at a speed of 60 km / h, when catching prey in the "peak", it develops a speed of 270-300 km / h. Another sprinter is black swift, whose normal speed is 120-180 km / h. Other birds follow them with a significant margin: rock dove - 73 km / h, field thrush - 70 km / h, crossbill - 60 km / h, common kestrel - 60 km / h, common jackdaw - 60 km / h, black blackbird - 53 km / h, chaffinch - 50 km / h, the same speed for siskins, teal-whistle, gray crane, black-headed gull, common mallard. The hooded crow reaches a speed of 43 km / h, the white stork - 41 km / h, the sparrow - 39 km / h.

The most flapping bird

Horned hummingbird (Heliactin cornuta), inhabiting the tropics of South America, flaps its wings at a frequency of 90 beats per second. The fastest flap of their wings ... hummingbirds. Hummingbirds from the Trochilidae family flapped their wings in the experiment for 50 minutes.

The wings move in figure eight
When flying, birds do not flap their wings up and down. Their movement rather occurs back and forth, resembling a figure eight, if you look at the bird from the side.

Able to fly backwards
is the only bird that can fly backwards.

Longest flight

Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) left its nest on the shore of a lake in Finland around August 15, 1996 and was caught on January 24, 1997 near lakes in Gippsland, PA. Victoria, Australia. She flew 25,750 km.

Main migration routes
From the European part of Russia, 201 species of birds fly to winter in Africa, 14 to tropical Asia, 1 to North America. From the Asian part of Russia, 26 species go to Australia, 16 to North America, 5 to South America, 95 to Africa. Arctic tern - the only one who flies to the shores of Antarctica, while overcoming 13-15 thousand km.

Many birds have short journeys. Mountain species descend lower until they find enough food, spruce crossbills fly to the nearest area with a good harvest of cones. However, some birds migrate great distances. Longest flight path Arctic tern: it flies annually from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back, covering at least 40,000 km in both directions.

Pigeons use human trails

Pigeons very often they fly without being guided by the Sun, as was previously believed, but simply following familiar highways, often making large loops after the highway where one could fly in a straight line. They use their own navigation system to follow familiar roads and turn at the right intersections. It is easier for birds to fly in this pattern than to find their way home in any other way.

Homing pigeon made a transatlantic flight
A carrier pigeon named Billy made a transatlantic flight from northern France to New York by mistake. At first, his owner expected the bird to land in England. But somewhere over the English Channel, a pigeon lost its course and flew 5.5 thousand km in the wrong direction. On the way, a hawk attacked Billy, the traveler got into a storm more than once - but everything ended well. According to bird watchers, this is a unique case.

First pigeon post
Pigeon mail was first used in 44, during the siege of the city of Murino, by the Roman military leader Decimus Brutus.

Lose the ability to fly

During molting, some birds lose their ability to fly. For example, ducks at the same time, they almost cannot fly for 20-35 days, swans - almost 1.5 months.

How birds prepare to fly
Before migration, the bird eats a lot, accumulating weight and storing energy in the form of subcutaneous fat. Gradually, she comes into a state of "flight anxiety". In spring, it is stimulated by lengthening daylight hours, which activates the gonads (sex glands), altering the work of the pituitary gland. In autumn, the bird reaches the same state as the length of the day decreases, which causes inhibition of gonadal function. In order for an individual to set off for migration, it needs a special external stimulus, for example, a change in the weather. This stimulus is provided by the movement of the warm atmospheric front in spring and cold in autumn.

Flight range record

... with simultaneous fasting belongs golden plover (Pluvialis), which, without landing, crosses the 3500 km section of the Pacific Ocean between Alaska and Hawaii at an average speed of 50 km per hour.

The last kilometers of the bird fly faster
In spring, species migrate to the north, as it were, according to a schedule, from year to year reaching certain points at the same time. Extending the segments of the non-stop flight as they approach the target, they cover the last several hundred kilometers at a much higher speed.

Migration height

As shown by radar measurements, the altitude at which the flight is made varies so much that it is impossible to talk about any normal or average values. However, it is known that night migrants fly higher than those who travel during the day. Among the migratory birds recorded over Cape Cod (USA, Massachusetts) and the nearest ocean area, 90% were kept at an altitude of less than 1500 m.

Sleep on the go
Storks (Ciconia)
during flights, they can periodically fall asleep on the fly for 10-15 minutes.

Petrel flew 8 million kilometers

dvuijk / birds / data / Puffinus-puffinus / ManxSh.jpg "width =" 250 "height =" 173 "/> A petrel caught on a small island north of Wales is possibly the oldest bird in the world. Puffinus puffinus She was first caught and ringed by ornithologists in May 1957, when she was between 4 and 6. And now the bird was caught again.

Until recently, the oldest ringed bird was considered the American albatross, whose age was estimated at 50 years. But the estimated age of the petrel (52) makes it a new contender for the record.
Experts from the British Foundation for Ornithology claim that the bird has flown at least 8 million kilometers in its long life. Exactly this distance must be overcome in order to circumnavigate the globe 200 times. During migrations to winter in South America and back, the bird covered about 800 thousand kilometers, the rest of the distance is frequent flights to the sea for food and back.


How many feathers
At the bird Erithacus rubecula (its second name robin) nearly 3,000 feathers.

Feathers grow unevenly
... from the grooves arranged in rows - feather bags, grouped into wide stripes, pterilia, which are separated by bare skin areas, apterias. The latter are invisible, since they are covered with feathers from adjacent pterilia overlying them. Only a few birds have feathers that grow evenly throughout the body, usually flightless species, such as penguins.

The longest feathers among wild birds

... relative to body length - these are the tail feathers of a male bird of paradise from ang. name Ribbon-tailed Bird of Paradise (Latin name Asptrapia mayeri) that lives in the mountain rain forests of New Guinea.

Among wild birds, the longest feathers in relation to body length are the tail feathers of the male striped bird of paradise with ang. name Ribbon-tailed Bird of Paradise (Latin name Asptrapia mayeri), which lives in the mountain rain forests of New Guinea.

Many or few feathers

The largest number of feathers that grows on one bird is the 25,216 feathers of the Tundra Swan Cygnus columbianus. Interestingly, 80 percent of the feathers grew on the swan's head.

The smallest number of feathers is 940 of the ruby-throated hummingbird Archilochus colubris. However, if you read the number of feathers in relation to body weight, this hummingbird will leave most birds behind. Its length is only 9 cm.

The colored pattern helps to find a mate during the breeding season.

Usually brighter and more contrasting colors are characteristic of males who use them during mating demonstrations.

Peacock beauty secret
The beauty of feathers peacock Pavo cristatus provides a reflective coloring effect. Each peacock feather has a central stem with many teeth on each side. And each prong, in turn, is composed of layers of a two-dimensional crystalline structure made of rods of melanin linked by a protein called keratin. The number of twigs and the spacing between them control the reflection of light, which produces different colors. For peacocks, these are green, golden yellow, brown and bright blue.

Ⓘ Saddled Yabiru

The saddle-billed yabiru is one of the genera of the stork family. The saddle-billed yabiru includes two species: the saddle-billed yabiru and the Indian yabiru.

1. Description

Both species are quite large - their size exceeds 140 cm, and the wingspan is from 230 to 270 cm. They are painted mainly in black and white colors and have a large bright beak. Sexual dimorphism does not appear in the color of the plumage, but it does appear in the different color of the eyes in both sexes. Saddle-bills fly with an extended neck. With the exception of beak banging while in the nest, they are fairly quiet birds. Their food includes fish, amphibians, crayfish, young chicks of other bird species and small vertebrates.

The saddle-billed yabiru is found in the Sahara Desert and surrounding regions, while the Indian yabiru is found in the tropical latitudes of Asia. These ankle-footed birds prefer to nest in marshy areas and other wet biotopes, making nests in trees.

The generic name Ephippiorhynchus comes from the Greek language and is a composite of the words ephippion - "saddle" epi "to" + hippos "horse" and rhynchus - "beak", which refers to the saddle-shaped depression at the base of the beak of these birds.
