BiologyThe white-tailed swallow forages around flowering trees for beetles which are its main food source (3). Breeding primarily takes place during the main rainy season from April to May (3), although it has also been recorded in January and February (2). The open cup nests of the white-tailed swallow can be found on rafters inside traditional houses (2) (3), and also on termite mounds (2). Information on clutch sizes is limited; however, a clutch of three eggs has been recorded, as has a nest containing four nestlings.
