Chimney Swift Watch at the Maryland Naturalist Center

  • May 1, 2014 · 7:45 PM
  • Maryland Naturalist Center

The Chimney Swift flocks are back and staying in Overlea at night during their migratory voyage from South America.  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.

Come a half hour early if the weather is cloudy or gray. Cancelled if raining. Check this site. 

Leader:  Carol Schreter, Baltimore Bird Club

Cost:  FREE

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.

More information about Chimney Swifts can be found though these links: http://www.chimneyswifts.org/   http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Chimney_Swift/id

    I'm sorry I can't join you this evening but I have a cold and I don't think I need to be sneezing around everyone. Can you post the address where the swift chimney is? I would like to try to get over there on an evening when I feel better.

    Do chimney swifts like torrential downpours? (smile)
