In South Africa, as in many other temperate parts of the world, the arrival of the spring season sees an influx of birds that had spent the winter in warmer climes. Swallows are great examples, though some individuals of the Lesser Striped Swallow depicted here (in the Pilanesberg National Park) do actually stay in South Africa year round.
