Asian House-Martin is distributed across various regions, including urban areas, agricultural lands, and rural habitats. They are commonly observed in the Punjab and Sindh provinces, as well as parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.
Asian House-Martins are highly social birds, often seen in large flocks during the breeding season. They feed on flying insects caught in mid-air, performing acrobatic aerial maneuvers to capture their prey. These birds are known for their adept flying skills, darting swiftly through the air with agility. During the breeding season, they construct cup-shaped mud nests under the eaves of buildings or on cliffs, where they raise their young.
