Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small gray-brown swift with long thin wings and a long heavily-forked tail. It has medium gray upperparts and pale gray underparts without any trace of white. Can be seen in rapid fluttering flight, often making trill “tiririree” calls while foraging on insects in pairs or loose flocks. Mostly a bird of the plains, but partial to areas with palms on which they breed.
