Unlike the Paintbrush swift the Contiguous Swift Polytremis lubricans is more of a sunlover.The males are very territorial ,patrolling their coveted territories chasing away all intruders.This species is very common in monsoon months especially in some specific pockets of this region,the Aakulam lake in the suburbs of Trivandrum is a good place where they can be observed commonly,commoner then even than the ubiqutous Rice Swift Borbo cinnara !
