The Chimney Swift flocks are back and staying in Overlea at night during their migratory voyage to South America for the winter. We're participating in Swift Night Out a national monitoring program to help estimate range wide populations. Come see their amazing evening descent into the nearby chimney. Over a thousand birds were observed entering the chimney last Fall during one evening.
Bring binoculars if you have them.
Swift Night Out is organized by the Driftwood Wildlife Association of Texas http://www.chimneyswifts.org/page8.html
A member of the Baltimore Bird Club SwiftWatch Team (http://baltimorebirdclub.org/) will be present to answer questions.
