DVOC Field Trip Report

MANAYUNK SWIFT ROOST
For a number of reasons (my own travel schedule, the birds’
unpredictability, and day- in-day-out monsoons) this year’s Chimney Swift
Field Trip was very sparsely attended. Five observers showed up to see 800 birds
swirl down the chimney at Jenks School in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.
We’ll try for a more successful field trip next fall.
