Bird's nest soup is a delicacy in Chinese cuisine. A few species of Swift, the cave swift, are renowned for building the saliva nest, used to produce the unique texture of this soup.
The edible bird's nests are among the most expensive animal products consumed by humans. The nests have been used in Chinese cooking for over 400 years, most often as bird's nest so, The most heavily harvested nests are from the White-nest Swift , and the Black _ nest Swift . The white nests and the "red blood" nests are supposedly rich in nutrients, which are traditionally believed to provide health benefits, such as aiding digestion, raising libido ( GUYS , GIRLS Use it more ), improving the voice (  is it any singer using ??? ) , alleviating asthma, improving focus, and an overall benefit to the immune System

The nests are built during the breeding season by the male swift let over a period of 35 days. They take the shape of a shallow cup stuck to the cave wall. The nests are composed of interwoven strands of salivary lamina cement. Both nests have high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium
Hong Kong and the USA  are the largest importers of these nests. In Hong Kong, a bowl of bird's nest soup would cost $30 USD to $100 USD. A kilogram of white nest can cost up to $2,000 USD, and a kilogram of "red blood" nest can cost up to $10,000 USD. The white nests are commonly treated with a red pigment, but methods have been developed to determine an adulterated nest natural red cave nest are often only found in limestone caves in bird nest concession island in Thailand.
The nests were formerly harvested from caves, principally the enormous Lime stone caves at Gotomantong  and Niah In Borneo.

With the escalation in demand these sources have been supplanted since the late 1990s by purpose-built nesting houses, usually reinforced concrete structures following the design of the SE Asian shop-house ("ruko"). These nesting houses are normally found in urban areas near the sea, since the birds have a propensity to flock in such places.
In East  Malaysia Perak is very well know also for the production of  Bird nest and in Taiping and Muar, during the eve u will have thousand of bird flight in the sky .
