   Sat 24 Jan Fork-tailed Swift Mount Louisa--suburb, Queensland, AU
   On our return home 9:15am, we pulled into our driveway to be surrounded
   by hawking/feeding Fork-tailed Swifts. Some very low at tree-top height
   and extending to altitudes where we could just make them out through
   binoculars. Estimated numbers at that time 1500 (+) and now at 10:45am
   the numbers have dwiindled to about 50 to 60.
