Latin Word:  Aerodramus fuciphagus, Collocalia fuciphagus

Edible swallow's nests are produced by edible-nest swiftlets (Aerodramus fuciphagus, Collocalia fuciphagus). These birds are from the same Apodidae family as the common swallow, but they are smaller in size, averaging only 11 cm in length, weighing about 15 to 18 g, while swallows can grow up to 17 cm and weigh around 30 g. Also, the tails of swiftlets are shorter with feathers that are rectangular in shape, while swallows have a longer tail and feathers that shaped like , ,followed by the second and third periods. Rainfall is particularly substantial during the first period. This provides an environment highly suitable for the growth of tiny animals and plants, giving swiftlets plenty of food. Swiftlets in this period grow particularly strong and thereby produce copious amount of saliva. Swallow nests harvested during this period are the best because they are big and thick, containing fewer impurities.

The second harvesting period is during the dry season, between April and June. There is a decrease in food supply for the swiftlets and this results in the nests being thin and loose and the nest threads thick. The shape and the swelling capacity of the nests are poorer than those of the first period.

The third period is well within the drought season, between July and October. During this period of the year, the swiftlets are weak. Their secretion of saliva is low and feathers come off more easily. Swallow nests that are constructed are smaller in size, containing more impurities and feathers and have a very poor swelling capacity.

As the nests are traditionally harvested from high up on cave walls, there is some risk to the collectors who stand on bamboo scaffolding that is sometimes hundreds of feet tall and centuries old. The risk involved in harvesting is a reason why cave swallow nest is so expensive. In contrast, house swallow nest is less expensive.
