The birds were put in two boxes, and I drove them to the Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek, where they will be cared for in the hospital until they are big enough and strong enough to be returned to the refinery. The swifts are among a number of birds that make their homes at the refinery, where they can make nests in the stacks. A couple of years ago, a worker rescued a fledging hawk in the same area of the refinery, and that bird was also treated by the Lindsay Museum before being returned to the refinery.
