The last Black Swift Chick!
- Hi All,
Just have to report that finally the last Black Swift chick left this
morning(Sun.Oct.9th)between 7:45 and 9:30a.m. Hopefully the adults and
chick are on their way to their winter home. This chick set a record for
staying the longest of any chicks and also the oldest!! He was 58 days old. It was a strange year with only 6 chicks total. Also late in arriving, laying their eggs and of course hatching. Not the best year,
by far!! I miss them already, but now I may have more time to do other
things. Yeah, yeah!!
Best of birding to all,
Sue of Lake Lenore/Ouray
