Small plain grayish swiftlet with a pale rump and a slightly darker cap. Almost always seen in flight; note slender wings, very quick stiff wing beats. Possible confusion with Tree Martin, which is much paler below with a paler rump, plumper body, and shorter wings. Abundant in tropical north Queensland.
