The Vaux Swift Birds Roost in the Chapman School Chimney

Every year in September the Vaux swifts stop here on their way to Disney World.
Since 1984 Portlanders have gathered to watch up to 35,000 of them funnel themselves to sleep down the Chapman School chimney. Most nights the hawk is there to put one of them to rest a few minutes early. This was the best theatre I've seen in a long time.

Features music by Reed Wallsmith and myself.

Thanks for inviting us along this was a very neat experience. The best live theatre I've ever seen for sure.
