  The illustrations below: Swifts have been studied since at least Pliny's times; on the left is Ferdinand Frisch's 18th Century etching of a Swift & a House Martin. Some Swift Groups can help you help House Martins too!   Further below: Kirkman's painting of two Swifts over a thatched cottage, and below that a portrait of two Swifts, possibly Alpine Swifts, by an unknown artist*, then another old watercolour of a Swift in a nest hole in an old building, artist unknown, then finally, two young Swifts in a DIY nestbox** by Ulrich Tigges     * from "Vorstellung der Vögel Deutschlandes und beylaüfig auch einiger Fremden" 1763 : ** Copyright © Ulrich Tigges
