I've been meaning to inquire if the swifts are gone from all locations in Missouri. The new Cole Camp tower was used this year, and the City Council observed around 200 coming to roost sometime in July. I have gone in several evenings to check on it, but I thought I had just arrived too late. One evening this week I checked about 7:15 and I stayed until 8:00. No sign of swifts.
