Experts had long believed that some birds keep flying in the air for several months and do not land. ۔ But it has now been proven that this ability is found in the Common swift of apps, such as Martin (Ababeel).
Common Swift is found in Europe and Asia. This bird of medium size flies for most of the year. , Some data have shown that this bird flies continuously for 10 months a year. It eats small insects that fly in the air during flight. In addition, male and female birds mating during their flight.
Even these birds release their special power rather than stir in the air in the air thermal. These birds sleep in their flight in the air and these air bubbles are called ‘thermals’.
In the 1950’s some experts suggested the idea of such a bird, but after research in 2016, the details of the constant flying swift came out. Earlier we learned that frigates and alpine swifts can fly for up to a month.
This research was carried out by the University in Switzerland, in which 19 types of Swift were tracked. It turns out that the Commons Swift (Ababeel) spends 99% of the time on a 10-month flight, but believes that they do not breed in the meantime.

Anders Hendenstrom, a scientist involved in the study, said that the bird also takes sleep during the flight, but did not provide more details. ۔ It is thought that it caters to sleep while flying like frigate and alpine swift. More research is needed on this.

If we look at the common swift’s their arms are tight and long, their legs are strong but small and light. Nature has also designed this bird under the aerodynamics principles. These birds stay in the atmosphere for a long time and do not fall prey to the ground diseases. Sometimes the big birds make them their prey.
The average lifespan of the common Swift (Ababeel ) is up to 20 years, and it travels 3 million kilometers throughout life, which is equal to the distance to the moon and return.
