Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, powerful swift, usually seen flying above montane forests. Similar to White-throated Needletail and can be difficult to distinguish in poor lighting; if seen well, look out for a grayish throat patch instead of a pure white one, and a duller, less extensive pale patch on the back. If seen with White-throated, appears marginally smaller and less bulky, with a shorter-winged silhouette.
