I happened to look out the window about 10 minutes ago and got a brief
view of what I think were 2 fork-tailed (Pacific) swifts flying fast
from north to south. Long pointed tail and swept-back wings. Impression
of all dark bird from below but hard to tell against the smokey sky.
That said, they must have been quite low to be seen at all.
