BIRDS NEST STORY
Latin Word: Aerodramus fuciphagus, Collocalia fuciphagus
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.
