These birds are supposed to be cave dwellers. Due to their precious bird nest, many people have started swiftlet farming by playing bird song to attract swiftlets to build nest in vacant shoplot, so they are getting common even in town area. Swiftlets never perch on wire and they have excellent aero-dynamic skill that they can even make love in the air, oh yeah..
