The Edible-nest Swiftlet (Collocalia&ciphaga) has been
receiving more attention lately due to the fact that this bird
produce an edible nests which fetch a high value in the international market. The original nesting habitat of this species is
limestone caves. Since approximately a hundred year ago,
people of Java has been successfully farmed the swiftlets in
houses which managed in such a way to resemble natural cave
habitat (Mardiastuti, 1996).
There has been no previous study on the breeding ecology
of the Edible-nest Swiftlet in Indonesia, either in natural cave
habitats or in man-made nesting habitat. This paper aims to
reveal the breeding success of the species and investigate the
possible causes of the breeding failure in swiftlet houses.
