Kane County Audubon Chimney Swift Sit - by Marion Miller
The Chimney Swift Sit on Tuesday 9-19-17 had a good showing of both Swifts and participants. 452 Swifts went to roost in the Lincoln Elementary School chimney from 7:13p to 7:24p. 34 people enjoyed the show and at least 10 of these participants had never seen a Chimney Swift before this evening. At first, when the numbers were small, the group was counting the roosting Chimney Swifts out loud and in unison. But as the Swift entrances increased the group became silent and the serious counters concentrated on counting those rapidly flying Swifts. We thought we were finished with the count when an additional 75 Swifts flew in as a group from the NE. I personally had never seen a large group come over so late and fly in at the end. Perhaps they had tried to fit into a chimney down the street and a “No Vacancy” sign was posted. Good show once again. Thanks Bob Andrini and KCA for making this event possible.

Bob Andrini issued this thank you to KCA members:
