How many times does a swallow beat its wings?
By comparing the European Swallow with bird species of similar body mass, we can estimate that the swallow beats its wings 18 times a second with an amplitude of 18 cm: Note that even the tiny Zebra Finch flaps its wings no more than 27 times a second while cruising.
