White-throated Swifts have just arrived at Smith. There constant chitter chatter alerted me to there presence. It is so cool to watch them work an area near the cliffs then leave together after they have cleaned up all the insects and repeat the process elsewhere. From the top of Misery Ridge you can hear them cutting through the air as they go overhead. Flying cigars indeed!
