Sick's Swift

Chaetura meridionalis Hellmayr, 1907

The Sick's Swift (Chaetura meridionalis) is a species of swift in the Apodidae family. It was previously considered conspecific with the smaller Ashy-tailed Swift, but Marín (1997) found that Sick's Swift was closer to the Chimney Swift. Source: Wikipedia
