|Examine||This bird obviously doesn't believe in subtlety.|
The Crimson swift is a red bird that can be caught using the Hunter skill, granting the player 34 Hunter experience. Crimson swifts are caught in the Feldip Hunter area or in Taverley using bird snares at level 1 Hunter.
An efficient way of hunting these (to decrease running time) is to bring a Ring of duelling. It allows one to teleport to Castle Wars, which has a bank. The player would then bank, and run back to the Crimson swifts. This cuts off about 20 to 30 seconds of time. Hunt butterflies while waiting for birds to be trapped. Another useful and time-effective way to bank the remains of the dead bird is to go to Mobilising Armies, where there's a bank in the North-west corner.
|“||The crimson swift is a tropical bird that typically lives in dense jungle areas. Subtlety is not one of this birds' strong points, its striking red plumage ensuring it will be visible wherever it goes, making it a popular bird for hunters and spotters alike.||”|
