     ... Abstract

    Rothschild's Swift (Cypseloides rothschildi) is among the least known South American swifts. Here we clarify its distribution and seasonality, and provide detailed natural history data and breeding information. We compiled 197 records of Rothschild's Swifts (museum specimens, citizen science initiatives, literature, and field observations) from Argentina and Bolivia; most from the breeding season (Oct–Mar, 177 records; 44 documented), a few thought to be on migration (Apr and Sep, 15 records; 3 documented), and fewer during the nonbreeding period (May–Aug, 5 records; 1 documented) with no records from July/August. Rothschild's Swifts are migratory, but the wintering quarters remain unknown. ...

     ... Distribution and population         Cypseloides rothschildi occurs in north-west Argentina (Jujuy, Salta, Tucumán, Catamarca, Santiago del Estero, Formosa, La Rioja and Córdoba), south-east Bolivia (Santa Cruz, Chuquisaca and Tarija), with one record from Cuzco in south Peru (Armonía 1995, Chantler and Driessens 1995, J. C. Chebez in litt. 1999). It has been recorded in forest and open country at 800-2,000 m, but very little is known of its behaviour or status.

    Ecology      It is probably most common in ravines and gorges of wet montane areas with numerous waterfalls for breeding sites (Chantler and Driessens 1995).

    Threats      Large tracts of the yungas forests in the core of its range have been cleared, particularly in Argentina, owing to logging of valuable timber, conversion for agriculture, plantations of Pinus spp., road-building and human colonisation (Vervoorst 1979, WWF/IUCN 1997). ...

     Rothschild's swift (Cypseloides rothschildi) is a Near Threatened species of bird in subfamily Cypseloidinae of the swift family Apodidae.[2][3][1] It is found in Argentina and Bolivia.[4]

     Taxonomy and systematics

    Rothschild's swift, white-chested swift, (Cypseloides lemosi), American black swift (C. niger), and sooty swift (C. fumigatus) form a superspecies. Some authors have treated Rothschild's and sooty swifts as conspecific.[5] Rothschild's swift is monotypic.[2]


    Rothschild's swift is about 15 cm (5.9 in) long. It has long, broad wings and a short squarish tail. Its plumage is a uniform medium brown.[6]

    Distribution and habitat

    Rothschild's swift is found from Bolivia's Santa Cruz Department south into northwestern Argentina as far as Córdoba Province. There are no records in Peru despite its being included there in some taxonomic lists. The species' habitat requirements are not well known. Most records have been over evergreen montane forest at elevations between 500 and 2,000 m (1,600 and 6,600 ft).[6] ...
