Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Scientists have Discovered Unique Flight Behavior in Black Swifts.

The Black Swift is a charismatic bird that breeds near waterfalls and in canyons of western Colorado.

Black Swifts migrate to the Amazon, and live entirely on the wing for huge periods of time, feeding on flying insects and even sleeping without ever touching down.

To study Black Swifts, biologists attach small data loggers to individual birds that record location, wing activity, and flight altitude to individual birds.
