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.

Cost: FREE

Leader: Carol Schreter, Baltimore Bird Club

Swift Night Out is organized by the Driftwood Wildlife Association of Texas

A member of the Baltimore Bird Club SwiftWatch Team ( ) will be present to answer questions.
