Here is your chance to observe the Vaux's Swift in Rainier Ore.

WHAS is actively monitoring the population of Vaux's Swifts by counting the birds as they enter their regular stopping places during the northbound migration in May and the southbound migration in September. To volunteer as an observer, or just to witness the spectacle when roosting numbers are at their peak at Carpet One in Rainier, Oregon, call Darrel Whipple (503-556-9838) or join any Saturday observation in September starting a half-hour before sunset on the steps of Rainier City Hall.
