Charles Foster is a writer, philosopher and Fellow of Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford. He is the author of Being a Human and the prize-winning Being a Beast, which is the subject of a forthcoming feature film. The family name, Apodidae, is derived from the Greek ἄπους ( ápous), meaning "footless", a reference to the small, weak legs of these most aerial of birds. [2] [3] The tradition of depicting swifts without feet continued into the Middle Ages, as seen in the heraldic martlet.

The taxonomy of the swifts is complicated, with genus and species boundaries widely disputed, especially amongst the swiftlets. Analysis of behavior and vocalizations is complicated by common parallel evolution, while analyses of different morphological traits and of various DNA sequences have yielded equivocal and partly contradictory results.
