Monroe School Administration Building


The 4x4 foot brick chimney had 5,436 Vaux's counted in 14 observations (mostly by Curt & Connie Young) during the 2008 northbound migration.  This site is in competition with the state's crown jewel of migration roost sites nearby.  Connie was a “Vaux’s Happening” hero by banishing herself to this most often no action chimney when others were having fun down the street at Wagner Elementary.  Her five May Saturday observations are very important in showing that the much lower numbers at Wagner in the northbound 09 count were not simply a result of the swifts now using the Administration Building.
