Ok, so, during the spring and summer, I see a few chimney swifts up above the Jordan Lake Dam, at sunrise. They would be leaving their night time roost and heading out to hunt high flying insects during the day. This video wasn’t made at Jordan Lake, but at sunset this evening near my home between Fuquay Varina and Holly Springs. The flock is growing in size as more and more migrants join the birds that were here for the summer. In about another 10 days all the chimney swifts will head for South America. Note: I made an error in my first posting of these birds which I have corrrected in this edit. Sorry.

Fantastic! It’s wonderful to see these huge groups of birds…… When Harold and I are in Hartford, CT, we often see great flocks of blackbirds whirling overhead……amazing!
