Since 2009, the Audubon Society of Portland has been counting Vaux's Swifts at Chapman Elementary School and at a number of other sites in the Portland-metro region as part of a community science project. These counts contribute toward a larger Pacific Coast-wide effort to keep track of the swift population. For more information and to get involved, visit our community science page.
