With our two webcams (one looking out of the chimney and one looking down into the chimney), we’ve been able to get some great video of the swifts in action. Currently, only the camera looking down into the chimney is functioning.
Stop by Wagner Center just before sunset to see the Vaux’s swifts as they settle into the chimney for the night.
To see live streaming during the 2016 spring migration at the Monroe chimney, go to www.wildearth.tv/cam/vauxs-swifts.
To see the current migration count numbers, go to monroeswifts.org, tap “Migration Counts” on the black bar across the top, then tap “Spring Migration 2016” on the drop-down menu. Past migration counts can also be accessed through the drop-down menu.
We are compiling various outtakes from this video and posting on YouTube:
