  SWIFTS  (1981)
Subject: Birds of Peru

Description: SWIFTS

This is an early plate that was prepared for the 'Birds of Peru' but it was not used. Increasing knowledge about the birds and changes in the design of the book required more illustrations of additional species and non-overlapping figures for the publication.

Swifts are seen and identified in flight, which generally require two figures illustrated for each species.

Gray-rumped S., Pale-rumped S., Short-tailed S., Chapman's S., Chimney S., Fork-tailed Palm S., Chestnut-collared S., White-chinned S., Andean S. (3 figs), and Lesser Swallow-tailed S.
