Let Mecklenburg Audubon Know About Chimney Swifts

The Mecklenburg Audubon Society is participating in a Chimney Swift roosting and nesting site survey.  Roosts are being occupied now.  Swifts arrive at nesting sites in April.  Please use this form to input your sightings:

Chimney swifts are forming migratory flocks right now that can be seen at dusk all around the area. In areas where there are large chimneys flocks of hundreds of individuals can be seen spiraling down into the chimney tops to roost for the night. If you know of such a roosting site, or had nesting swifts in your chimney this year, take some time to fill out the form at the web address above.
