More migrating White-throated Swifts

A few days ago I spotted another migrating flock of White-throated Swifts, but this flock was east of Canon City in the Brewster area. Though they appeared to be following the Arkansas River as I have observed in previous years, they had stopped to feed and were foraging up to about a quarter mile from the river. Finally I got a photo of one that shows the eye on one of the swifts.
I have spotted migrating flocks of White-throated Swifts in previous years including these also along the Arkansas River but just east of Florence. SeEtta
