Short Description:

Common House-Martin (Delichon urbicum) is a small passerine bird belonging to the swallow family. With its distinctive glossy blue-black plumage and white underparts, it is easily recognizable. Its streamlined body and forked tail aid in swift flight, and it often nests in colonies under eaves or on cliffs.

Common House-Martin is primarily found in the northern regions, particularly in the mountainous areas such as the Himalayas. It can also be spotted in some urban and rural areas, especially during the breeding season.
These birds are highly social and gregarious, often seen flying in groups or nesting colonies. They feed on flying insects caught in mid-air, performing agile aerial maneuvers to capture their prey. During the breeding season, they construct cup-shaped mud nests under overhangs or on buildings, where they raise their young.
