26! chaetura swifts

While walking across the el Prado st bridge in Balboa Park I had a single flock of 26 chaetura swifts flying overhead at around 4:45pm.  Unfortunately I was heading to the food truck festival so I only had my binos.  I heard the display calls, but I’m not sure if these are different between the two.  This seems unprecedented, but I’ll check Vaux’s winter records later.  There were also white-throated swifts under the bridge.
