Like magic a group of 15+ BLACK SWIFTS descended from the heavens at Sutton Beach, Lane Co. this morning around 10:15. They were at very low altitude mixing with Barn and Violet-green Swallows, offering a great comparison and superb views of these massive swifts. I have had my best luck with them on cloudy days like this morning. It forces them quite low to around 30-40 ft. just above the foredune, so they are easy to spot. On sunny days I'm too busy looking at the ground for eggs and plovers so probably just miss them.
Always a treat!
