Description: An extremely local breeder in its preferred habitat: high-elevation waterfalls. By far most easily observed at Box Canyon Falls in Ouray, where birds can be seen on the nest from a catwalk. A few other nesting sites are accessible, but the birds rarely visit the nest during the day, and often go undetected even when present, especially on clear days, because they may forage so high they cannot be seen with the naked eye. Rare well away from breeding sites in migration or during periods of exceptionally bad weather in the moutains. Black Swifts do not arrive in the state until June and are mostly gone by early September.
