Attracting Swifts to my Nest Boxes.

The next job was to try & encourage Swifts to visit my Nest Boxes.

So first, I acquired a Swift Calls CD.

Then, using the small speaker from a mini Stereo Sound System,

I removed the front from the lower nest box & started broadcasting the Swift Calls.

Here's a short video that will give you some idea of just how far these calls can be heard.

Here's a shorter video clip taken nearly 300 yards away & the Swift Calls can still be heard. 

I'm sure the Swifts can actually hear these calls from a lot further away than this.
