    About: The red-rumped swallow (Cecropis daurica) is a small passerine bird in the swallow family. It breeds in open hilly country of temperate southern Europe and Asia. They winter in Africa or India and are vagrants to Christmas Island and northern Australia.

    This swallow has been juxtaposed with paper boats, in reference to The Child Migrants’ Memorial at Valletta Waterfront (inaugurated in 2008 to commemorate the 310 Maltese children, mostly boys, who traveled to Australia in search of a better life between 1950 and 1965).
