Vaux’s Swift Watch – April 19, 2019

We know we can expect the Vaux’s Swifts to arrive with a warm wind from the south sometime between early April and early May. What we don’t know is exactly when. The timing of the migration has varied recently, with the birds coming through earlier, which makes it hard for humans to know when to have a party to celebrate their arrival!

We hope the Vaux’s Swifts will be here April 19th, when we gather to watch them ride in on the wind. They use the chimney to roost for the night, funneling in to rest and recover after their long migration from the south.

Come join us at sunset, Friday, April 19th. Reluctant family members will often join in, if you promise ice cream at nearby Prince Pucklers. Outside Agate Hall on the UO campus, 17th Ave and Agate Street.
