Swift migration biology


This video is about migration of swifts from the Netherlands to African countries like Mozambique.

Dutch swifts fly 280,000 kilometer a year, more than seven times the circumference of planet earth.

Biologist Raymond Klaassen studies their migration by providing the birds with geo loggers.

He recently won a Dutch prize for ornithology for his research about various bird species.
