Vaux’s Swift Watch – April 14 and 28 at Sunset
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We hope to welcome the Vaux’s Swifts back in April as they arrive with a warm wind from the south. The timing of the migration varies, so we hope they will show up when we gather to watch the birds ride in on the wind. The swifts use the Agate Hall Chimney to roost for the night, funneling in to rest and recover after their long migration from the south. Most will continue north and east to the mountains for the nesting season.
Come join us at Agate Hall, on UO campus at 17th Avenue and Agate Street. Reluctant family members will often join in, if you promise ice cream at nearby Prince Pucklers.

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.
