A Swallow (lastivka) is a small, long-winged bird with a deeply forked tail, belonging to the family Hirudinidae. In Ukraine swallows are migratory birds with a strong homing instinct. Owing to their close contact with humans, swallows figure prominently in Ukrainian folklore, folk songs, and poetry, as symbols of beauty and family unity. Their graceful flight pattern (in search of insects) was used to predict coming rains. Swallows are beneficial birds since they protect crops and forests by destroying flying insects.
