Hi, Tweets

Last night's Vaux's swift count at Monroe's Wagner School was 7,700,
so if you haven't seen them yet, there's still time. We also had an
engaging sharp-shinned hawk getting into the action last night. It
"attacked" the chimney several times but we could never tell if it
got its dinner. As the hawk zoomed in, the swifts zoomed up, up, and
far away. In two or three minutes they were back - another minute or
so, and the hawk was back. Great show!

Cheers, Diann
