Swiftlet Foraging of Flying Termite !!!

Usually after a heavy rain you will be able to see lots of swiftlet flying low foraging those flying insects.

Most of the time after rain the soil will be soft and this will be the best time for those termites to take their flight.

The main reason why those termite take their flight is to start new colonies.

Once the source is located those swiftlet will start to gather in a big flock and they will harvest any or all those that take their flight.

Have a look at these video clips and pictures.
