Swallows
Swallows are superficially like swifts, but the wings are not so long and crescentic, and the flight is different. They are largely aerial, hawking for insects with characteristic swooping flight. They roost commonly along electricity and telegraph wires in downtown areas. (Derek Holmes & Stephen Nash, The Birds of Sumatra and Kalimantan, 1990)
