White-naped Swift - This species is essentially a bird of wild highland landscapes, where it favors cliff faces, deep river gorges and high craigs. Its main habitats are pine-oak forests, tropical deciduous forests and second-growth scrub. This swift is usually found at an elevation of 1500 to 3000 m and, much more rarely, down to sea level.


White-collared swift - This very large swift builds a saucer nest of mud, moss and chitin on a ledge in a cave, usually behind a waterfall, and lays two white eggs between March and July. It breeds in the mountains and foothills, but forages over a much larger area, including lowlands.
