Vaux Swifts

Over the summer we have had the chance to see Daren quite a few times.  His work brought him up to our area.  Daren is quite the wildlife photographer, birdwatcher, hiker, etc.  A few days ago he told me about some birds called Vaux Swifts.  Each September thousands of migrating Vaux’s Swifts roost in chimnies to rest while on their southern migration.  There are certain chimnies that they go to each year so people make it a point to go with blanket and lawn chairs to watch the festivities.  I read about one place even having a spagetti feed at the school where the birds roost.  Daren sent me a link to a video that I will post .  It really is amazing! 
Psalm 104.
