Bird’s Nest – the nest made of saliva mixed with the down feather of the swiftlet Collocaliae sculenta Linnaeus. It can be found in South East Asia, the Pacific Islands, and China’s central and northern parts. It has the capability of nourishing Ying in our body, rejuvenating Qi, relieving phlegm and cough. It is often used to nourish Ying, rejuvenate Qi, and relieve phlegm and cough.
Under the Apodidae family, Swiftlets are often found in tropical coastal areas, nesting in the caves of the islands. They have great flying ability but are not a good walker. Feeds on a variety of insects. Dark brown in colour on its head, back, and ventral surface, with a lighter spot on its waist, and pure black on its flight and tail feathers with a greenish sheen. Its long and pointed wings can exceed its short tail when closed. Its tail feathers are slightly squared. Has short, broad, and slightly curved beak. Feet is brown, feathered, slim, and weak with black claw. Can be found in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, and China’s central and southwestern parts.

Bird’s Nests are typically harvested between February, April, and August. The swiftlets lay their eggs in April every year, and a new nest must be built before that. During this period, their salivary glands are extraordinarily well-developed, and the nests they make in this period are solidified with saliva and are called “White Nest” because of their pure white colouration. If harvested, the swiftlet will immediately start working on their second nests, sometimes called “Uncleaned/Feathered Nest” as feathers can often be found in the nests darker in colour. Occasionally, the nests could be in bloody-red colour and are called “Blood Nests”.
