AMIR GERON:

Departure of Common Swift from Ramat Aviv, Israel in 2005

 

The Common Swifts who returned to Ramat Aviv, between 19th Feb (6 birds) and 6th  March (30 birds) left the area on 8th June. I counted the last ones (about 20 birds) on 7th and 8th June, but saw none thereafter.

 

This makes for a stay of 110 days when one counts from the first sighting, and 95 days when one counts from the arrival of the largest number of birds.
