Vaux's Swift at Vandenberg AFB, Santa Barbara County, CA

Observation details

This is an estimation as it was very difficult to count them, but my impression was there were birds moving through the area and circling over the pond, occasionally down to the water, then moving on. It was constant the entire time I was there with a few dozen seen together at any one time. Over the course of the 1.75 hours I was present the count certainly was around 200 birds.
