Safis are the most owlish of Gohzars(Swifts). They have no frills but long birds as the rest of Swifts. Their colors vary and don't have a defined color pattern, but mostly almonds with faded necks. They are bred for an owlish beak and a small size head as compared to the long body. Note the sketch that represent the group.

Note the width of the frontal. The sweep has to be pronounced to get a total blend with the skull. The dip in that area that is commonly noted in most pigeon bread is replaced here by a hump or elevation
The entire look of the previous bird. Note also the fullness of the neck area, blending the head as part of it

Several of my Safi collection. I cull all weak birds and keep between three to five pairs maximum of each of the ES groups that I have. I tend to keep more Safis because of the difficulty to produce quality birds
