Examples

  • But the holes were too small, and no bird but a bank-swallow would have attempted such a thing.

    Ways of Wood Folk

  • The pretty little bank-swallow, another very common and numerous tribe, is entirely a stranger here, though found on the banks of lakes and rivers at no great distance; we have seen them, indeed, in large flocks, among the sand-hills near the Susquehanna, just beyond the southern borders of the county.
