    Can a bird glide?

    Can a bird glide?
    The FALCON is gliding above the forest.

    I used the verb "hover" before and now I just don't want to repeat one and the same verb in one abstract. Can "hover" and "glide" be interchangible?

    Re: Can a bird glide?

    Many birds can glide, but hover and glide are definitely not interchangeable.

    See the dictionary definitions of these words: hover and glide.
