Common Swift

Apus apus


Swifts are extremely agile birds in the air, able to dart from one location to the next very quickly.


Swifts favor more warm areas, and can be found throughout the u.s. , but do not range in deserts or cold temperatures.


It was hard for me to get a good picture of these birds because they were so fast, but in this picture there were two swifts chasing each other.
