Swift Release

7109 140905-0906  "Swift Release"  Yesterday, September 4+, 2014, we attended the "Juvenile Chimney Swift Release"++ event since we were very fortunate to get this event info from Julie, a naturalist, in a timely manner: "Thank you, Julie." Four young chimney swifts were released to join a group of about 1,000 migrating chimney swifts. The group is currently living in a chimney at Mahtomedi High School, Minnesota. It was awesome to see the four young swifts joining the group and then the group going down to the chimney, one after another; sometime between sunset and 20 minutes after sunset+++, about 1,000 chimney swifts flew overhead from all directions, circled, and congregated above the roost chimney. Then, they dove into the chimney like a sort of tornado to settle in for a long night-rest.    Chimney Swift Conservation | Minnesota
