Subject: [wisb] Chimney Swift roost count tonight
Hi,
I Counted Chimney Swifts tonight at the migratory roost here in Fredonia.

First two swifts dropped into the chimney at 6:51pm.

Next 2 at 6:54.

Nothing then til 6:59 when 7 more dropped in.

At 7:04, all the rest decided it was time.

Like watching smoke go DOWN the chimney.

Between 7:04 and 7:20 I conservatively counted over 800 Swifts entering the roost.

My final number stands at 825.

Just WOW.

I am awestruck every time I witness this.
