Swifts ou Swallows?

The Basque writer Fernando Aramburu wrote a book in 2021 entitled "los vencejos" (literally translated "the swifts") in which the protagonist defines the return of the swifts the following spring as a pivotal moment in his own story. In May of this year, the publisher D. Quixote published the work in Portuguese, translated by Cristina Rodriguez and Artur Guerra, with the title "the return of the swifts" and a very nice cover, but where instead of swifts there are two barn swallows. Shall we learn how to identify them?
