Tak, GERT, for en Herlig flok, hvor flere individer minder slående om Lille Stormsvale!
___________________________________

Begge fuglegrupper er tilpasset livet i Luften og lever
af hhv. havets og lufthavets smådyr.
De færdes nødigt på fast underlag [Apus (sejlere) = uden fødder],
og stort set kun, når påkrævet ved ynglepladsen.

Skyldes deres frapperende lighed i SORT fjerdragt,
at begge fuglegrupper har fordel af SORT på ynglepladsen
ved nattetid under jorden (Stormsvaler) eller i hulheder
i bygninger og klipper (Sejlerne)?

There are striking similarities between the above Swifts and European Storm Petrels as to flight silhouettes and
plumage.

Both groups are small airborn hunters, shying walking on
the ground.

Their similar BLACK plumage is due to their dark nesting
sites ??
