Inspired by Larry Schwitters' emails to Tweeters and to Vaux Happening
subscribers, I headed out on this chilly and breezy night to look for
Vaux's Swifts at the Johnson Auto Glass roost chimney in downtown Yakima.
At 7:53 p.m., 8 minutes after local sunset, a pair came twittering over and
allowed me to take some photos before they continued on to the northwest. I
think this is one of my earliest sightings of Vaux's Swifts here in Yakima
County. Early is becoming more and more normal. It was 41° at sunset. I
hope they found a warm roost.
I submitted a report on Larry's website at https://www.vauxhappening.org/
using the "Contact Us" >> "Submit a Report" drop-down menu.
