Swift Watch 2012, Chapman Elementary School

2012 marked our second time seeing the migrating Vaux’s Swifts descend on the chimney at Chapman School in NW Portland (here’s my post from 2011). Thanks to the Audubon Society of Portland for organizing learning opportunities while there and thanks to nature for showcasing some awesomely beautiful things. Of course, the best parts of the evening were when birds of prey (a Peregrine Falcon, if I remember correctly) swoop in for a kill (pics).
