Yes my fellow listtoids the Monroe Wagner SWIFT NIGHT OUT which has been held the first Saturday in September isn’t going to happen today, or next week, or this month. Why not? Blame the virus, blame the lack of bird action the last two years, blame the Merlins, and blame me. I was afraid that
the Wagner swifts would be mostly gone come September for the third year in a row. it seems that has happened. Only 300 in the Wagner roost this morning. Selleck is down to three, nearly out numbered by the Merlins.

If you want to see a lot of swifts head to the Rainier, Oregon Riverside Church. The last three nights have been 11,000, 11,000 and 18,000.

Pilchuck Audubon is putting together the first ever SWIFT NIGHT IN, September 30 6:30-8:00. Be sure to mark that on your Calendars.

It’ll be wild.
