Swift habitat in Jakarta

Unfortunately, I can't place a photo of a Palm Swift here (they were too swift for me), but I was watching them from my hotel window today here in Jakarta, and then from below the palm trees in this photo. They were constantly flying near the trees, and even between the fronds, but I never actually saw them land. I think they were of the same species (Asian Palm Swift) that I saw in Malaysia last year. There is precious little habitat suitable for birds in this very crowded city, so I was pleased to find about six different species in the hotel garden.
