Whiskered treeswift

Hemiprocne comata


I was walking in the forest in the morning when I found this whiskered treeswift perching on the suspension bridge. It has a pair of conspicuous white stripes on its head.


Lowland rainforest of Danum Valley Conservation Area.


I was around 2 meters from this bird when it finally became alert of my presence and flew away.
