Chimney Swifts returning to roost from SeEtta Moss on Vimeo. After finding out about this chimney in Harlingen, TX that hosts several hundred Chimney Swifts I had to go see it. I was not disappointed as I enjoyed watching hundreds of these birds converge near this large chimney, circling and chittering until they dive into the chimney to roost for the night. As they wait until almost dark to go to their roost it is best to watch this in full screen mode (click on 'vimeo' to enlarge). SeEtta

In addition to the rare warblers below, there were a lot of other neat migrants at the South Padre Island Convention Center Gardens this past week including 2 male Painted Buntings.
I am behind on uploading here, I got these beauties at South Padre Island Convention Center gardens last week.
The bottom pic would have been so good if wasn't for that little branch in the way, oh well. SeEtta

I was less than 20 feet away as it foraged. I carefully moved away to go get a couple from Manitoba who had been looking for it and it was still foraging when we returned.

I found this 1st year Gray Hawk at Old Hildago Pumphouse in Hildago, Tx today. So now I have seen 2 1st year Gray Hawks and no adults so far on this trip.
I also found this Brown-crested Flycatcher at that location.
