I am a photo editor for Encyclopaedia Britannica working on a project which involves finding an image of an Indian spine-tailed swift. Through extensive research via the internet and our usual photo sites, I keep coming up short. I have not found a single image which uses this specific name.
The information I was given for the search is as follows:
photo Indian spine-tailed swift bird in flight--A member of the Kingfisher family of birds, it is known to scientists as Hirundapus caudacutus. True to its name, the spine-tailed swift has small spines projecting from its tail feathers. For the same reason, the bird is known in some areas of the world as the white-throated needle tail.
Could you please advise...is this information correct? Also, would you able to advise as to where I might be able to procure an image of said bird, if there is such a bird.
Thank you in advance for your time and attention to this matter. I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience.
