The highest priority for future research on White-tipped Swift would be its reproductive biology, as very little is known about colony locations, breeding season, nest type, egg appearance, and clutch size. The total range is also not well known, partly because White-tipped Swift is patchily distributed and perhaps partially nomadic. Population numbers also need to be quantified to better assess the decline of this species and threats due to habitat loss.
