Come see something special! We will watch White-throated Swifts attending their roost site at the end of the day. Swifts are done nesting for the season, but migrants passing through use a crack in the Lyons Formation hogback above Deer Creek, roosting in this special, unique spot. In the late Sept to the very early part of October they may sometimes be seen at this roost in large numbers of 100-300 birds. We hope to view he pre-roost flight activity and then witness their entry into the roost. It is a nature spectacle. We'll discuss swift ecology and learn about this fascinating bird. Carpool very short way from from meeting spot. Bring a layer for evening cool. We will spend much of the time standing in one area as we watch. Rain or poor weather may cancel. Register online or contact the leader. Register online or contact the leader.
