As best I could tell the Wagner swifts began their exit at 8:08 this morning. I didn’t have my stopwatch going but my wristwatch indicated it was over in about three minutes. Looks like a handful came back in and there is a small pile of four high on the south wall. It’s actually five. http://wildearth.tv/cam/vauxs-swifts <http://wildearth.tv/cam/vauxs-swifts>

Who among you in all of tweeterdom attempted to count them this morning?

Maybe they get some heat from the IR. http://wildearth.tv/cam/vauxs-swifts <http://wildearth.tv/cam/vauxs-swifts> From the darker throat it looks like the third one from the left is a Chimney Swift. Bet you don’t have that on your Snohomish County list.
