Subject: [obol] Cyclone of Swifts Continue in Silverton Monday Night
Did another Vaux Swift Count tonight in Silverton. An old “Swift Counter” friend helped so... 2600 birds was the number we settled on. It was obvious to me at 6:30 there were “less” Swifts over Silverton than the previous night at that time but you’d never know by looking up 15 minutes later. The sky was full of swifts from 7:00 to 7:35 and the final whirlwind near the chimney looked more like a cyclone than a feature of bird migration. Gone soon in a chimney near you….

Good Birding!
