Vaux's Swifts entering chimney


Vaux's Swifts are again putting on a show every evening in our town (and probably in many towns in Oregon) as they go to roost in chimneys for the night. This flock of about 1,000 on my street will probably disappear within a few days as they scatter for the nesting season. I wonder how they decide which pair gets to stay in this one.

I'm not sure how many birds would be in a flock of a gazillion, but they would need a pretty big chimney, I'm sure. I will definitely be watching for a good chance to take a picture of a woodpecker or a hummingbird. But a hummingbird photo might be kind of blurry, don't you think?
