Front crawl is the fastest swimming stroke in swimming. According to world record times, at every distance in international competition, the order of swimming stroke speeds fr…om fastest to slowest is: 1. Front crawl (commonly known as, and chosen for, freestyle) 2. Butterfly 3. Backstroke 4. Breaststroke
The fastest bird is the Peregrine Falcon; the fastest one measured reached a speed of 248 mph.
Yes, many birds can swim. How do they do this without messing up their wings/feathers? it's because in a gland near the bird's tail is some oil, when a bird preens he spre…ads the waterproof oil all over his feathers to keep the bird from drowning. (preening is when a bird straightens out his/her feathers to keep them intact with his/her beak.)
The Gentoo Penguin is the fastest swimming bird. It can swim 40km per hour, or almost 25 mph.
The fastest bird when diving is the Peregrine falcon The fastest speed the Peregrine Falcon reached ever recorded was an amazing 242.3 MPH or 390 KPH. The fastest bird when… in flight is the Swift The Spine-tailed Swift, also know as the White-throated Needletail (Hirundapus caudacutus) KPH=171 MPH=106 The Fastest bird on land is the Ostrich KPH = 70 MPH = 43.5
The sparrow hawk, it's been recorded at upto 190mph.
the fastest swimming stroke is the butterfly...well it is supposed to be, but since it is such i difficult stroke as well it is harder to swim a long distance well. So the mos…t efficient and fast stroke would have to be freestyle (the front crawl) hope i helped :) The fastest stroke is front crawl, full stop!
The Common dolphin is generally the fastest swimmer of the dolphin family.

The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest in the air and the Ostrich is the fastest on land. Answer It depends on what state of movement you're looking for, running, fly…ing or diving? Falcons 'torpedo' faster than any other bird of prey when they are in pursuit...Some birds run faster than they fly. Sorry, can't tell you who flies the fastest. The Spine-tailed Swift is considered to be the fastest bird in straight flight. Answer In flight speed the top five are. 1. the peregrine falcon-175 mph, 2. the spine-tailed swift-106 mph, 3. the frigate bird-95 mph, 4. the spur-winged goose-88 mph, 5. the red-breasted merganser-80 mph.

Birds swim in different ways. Ducks use their paddle shaped feet to swim. Penguins use their modified wings as flippers.
