We've moved from dense rainforest to the Oregon Coast and then into the Willamette Valley. For the final video in our Zen Wednesday series, we're returning to the work of Contributor Kevin Freeny, who captured a little urban wildlife in this video of Vaux's swifts roosting in an elementary school chimney in Portland, Oregon. These flocks swirl and flutter into evanescent shapes that are absolutely mesmerizing, and the wonder visible in the faces of all the Portland residents gathered to witness the event is a perfect reminder that these moments can happen in a variety of environments, and sometimes when you least expect them.
We hope you've enjoyed these videos as much as we do. Do you have your own wildlife Zen moment? Don't keep it to yourself...tell us all about it in the comments section!
