vaux's swifts enter chimney

Lane County Audubon Society will host two fall swift events outside Agate Hall at sunset on Friday, September 8, and Friday, September 22 around 7:30pm or sunset. It’s fun to observe the swifts as they gather, inside the Agate Hall chimney to roost before they fly off to Central and South America for the winter. We may see thousands of birds circling, then funneling into the chimney, but there is no guarantee!

Look for the LCAS banner at the 17th and Agate parking lot North of Agate Hall. Stop by and enjoy this annual natural phenomenon. It’s free! And conveniently close to Prince Puckler’s Ice Cream, which is not free, but can be a low-cost addition to your evening’s fun and may entice reluctant family members and/or friends to come along and share the amazement!
