If you had gone to Monroe Wagner the last two nights seeking a spectacular wildlife encounter you would have been disappointed. We documented six both nights and it’s most likely not going to get any better. JBLM had 13,000 but it can be difficult to get past security. Go a little farther south and the swifts at the Chehalis Odd Fellows Hall would have given you a good show. Go a lot farther south to North San Francisco Bay’s McNear Brick yard you would have been entertained by 40,000 aerobatic wee birds.

Our Audubon’s Vaux’s Happening project keeps close records of how many swifts we can count Saturdays roosting along the Pacific Flyway and 9/16/17 was our second best ever, ever, 80,579.
