Fairy Swallows

or Spot Swallows

A pair of Fairy Swallows, female on the right

With a black spot on the head, black wings and huge black muffs on the feet, this is a very striking bird. It may be plain-headed or have a shell crest. It is a member of the group of pigeons known as the German Toys. The Toy breeds were developed for color and markings, not for type, and include some very attractive birds.
