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.
Come a half hour early if the weather is cloudy or gray. Cancelled if raining. Check this site.
Leader: Carol Schreter, Baltimore Bird Club
