Swifts on Oak-Beeville Texas 2013. Photo by: Jason Collins

The Vaux’s Swifts made their appearance again this year, the fifth year in a row. We’re excited that this year there was a record number with one evening in late May of 8,500 birds. The museum installed a live camera on the roof and ran the live stream of visits on YouTube. Courtenay is the most northern recorded stop in civilization as they move north.
