MIA chimney swift
Friday morning there was far less cloud cover, especially of the low drippy variety, compared to what the weather forecast called for, and as a result there were far fewer swallows and swifts in the TRV. We had three Vaux's still present, and distant looks at a soaring chateura, but certainly nothing overly intriguing, and the numbers are way down. Given that the forecast calls for increasing sunshine and warmer temperatures over the next few days, that will certainly not help at all in any swift searches until the weather becomes gloomy gray again.
At the bird and butterfly garden, the female hermit warbler continues as do four Townsend's warblers, one of which has an injured wing and is likely incapable of long-distance flight, so it will be interesting to see how long it continues there in the silk oaks. Two female Lawrence's Goldfinches continue as well.
