The White Throated Swift is a fast flying bird with short but strong legs used to cling to walls and rock crevices. Audubon did not document this species but this print is based on the “American Swift” print. When weather turns cold unexpectedly, they can be found clustered together on walls of homes and chimneys where they gain warmth.
