[photos] Watching the Vaux's Swifts at Chapman School

Yesterday, [info]the_child, Ace Jordyn and I met Team E— at the Chapman School to watch the Vaux's Swifts come home to their chimney.

It was fun to see. Hundreds of people turned out to watch. Our show was abetted by a hunting merlin that made an appearance near the end of the evening looking for dinner on the wing.
