Introduction

Antillean Palm-Swift is widespread and is fairly common, but remains poorly studied, and most aspects of its natural history are very poorly known. There is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality and population density, and sexual behavior. There also is relatively little information regarding the reproductive biology of Antillean Palm-Swift. Its status on Puerto Rico - rare visitor or very local breeder? - also remains unresolved, and merits further investigation
