Announcing a new Meetup for nature lovers' meetup!

What: A Swift Night Out

When: September 22,[masked]:15 PM

Where:
Pike Park
Columbia Pike and S Walter Reed Drive
Arlington, VA 22204

As summer draws to a close and chimney swifts have finished raising their young, these fascinating aerial acrobats begin to congregate in communal roosts prior to their migration in the fall. Some roosts may consist of an extended family group of a half a dozen birds or so, but the larger sites can host hundreds or even thousands of swifts! We will meet at a location in South Arlington to observe one of these larger sites as the swifts come in to roost.

Before that, we'll take a brief walk around the neighborhood observing what nature we can and also having a look at the restored native plant habitat along the ravine.

After the swift display comes to an end, we can get some dinner at either Manee Thai or Attila's (Turkish). If you want to come for dinner and have a preference between the two, indicate so in your rsvp.
