Bon Voyage to Vaux’s Swifts at Agate Hall

September 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

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. 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!

Program Meetings

Our monthly program meetings have something for everyone. During the last year we hosted programs by naturalists, wildlife artists and expert birders on a variety of topics from the birds of Hawaii, to ravens, wolves, and people, to the migration of red knots. Participating in a program meeting is a fun way to get involved with Lane County Audubon. Meetings are free and open to all.

We are currently meeting on Zoom and in-person as conditions allow on the 4th Tuesday of each month between September and May at 7:00 p.m.
