This year’s Vaux’s Swift Family Fun Night sponsored by Rogue Valley Audubon Society at Hedrick Middle School in Medford is Monday, Sept. 9.  Join us for a joyous evening of watching the aerial display of hundreds of swifts circling and dropping into the school’s famous brick chimney. Hear about why this Medford stopover on their southern migration to Central and South America is so important.

Teachers and students involved in the special RVAS fall education program for seventh graders have activities planned for the whole family. Bring a blanket or chair and meet us next to the football field and the gym around 6 p.m.  If you can’t make it on Sept. 9, RVAS will have representatives there each evening at dusk throughout the September migration, to explain the Vaux’s Swift unique story and count the birds to enter citizen science databases ( and eBird).

We look forward to seeing you there.
