DVOC Field Trip Report

MANAYUNK SWIFT ROOST

Close to 2000 Chimney Swifts showed up at Jenks School in Chestnut Hill on the evening of Wednesday, September 5 for the annual joint DVOC/Wyncote Audubon field trip. The first few birds turned up around 7:00 PM, and the last one dropped down the chimney at 7:50 to scattered applause. It was a spectacular display for the dozen or so people who were present. A good time was had by all. Maybe even the swifts.
