Obviously a Chaetura Swift. Fairly dark throat and rump. Wing with bulging inner primaries. a different observer also heard this bird calling. Two other Chaetura Swifts with this bird remain unidentified so far. Photos by Dave Krueper.

Much paler than Chimney Swift. Slightly smaller, and with straighter edged wing. I have very little experience with this species but I consulted several more experienced birders and shared photos with them. Each one told me that this individual was a Vaux's Swift and several told me that it was a particularly pale individual. Consultants include Rich Hoyer, Nick Lebathy, Dave Irons and Jon Dunn.
