Chimney Swifts


The Driftwood Wildlife Association "promotes the conservation of Chimney Swifts through public education, preservation of existing habitat and creation of new nesting and roosting sites". They are once again plotting chimney swifts' movements northward over the next few months and are asking folks to let them know when you spot the first one in your area. To post your sighting go here. Also on their site is a chimney swift web cam, an online newsletter (Chaetura), plans for building your own chimney swift tower, and much more. Check them out....it is a worthwhile organization.

When I was a student in Toronto, they always showed up on campus on or near May 1. They lived in the chimney of one of the older buildings. I'll watch the migration map with interest to see when they get there this year. I'm now in southwest BC, and Chimney Swifts are one of the eastern birds I miss the most.

Thanks for the post!

Hugh,

Thank you for the comment! Nice to hear from one of our friends from the north. I checked out your blog and thought it would be a nice addition to my nature blog list. Keep up the good work.
