Swift Nights Out 2019

We are looking for volunteers for our Fourth Annual Ann Arbor-Washtenaw County Chimney Swift count, August 16, 17 and 18.  Watching Chimney Swifts enter their roosts at dusk is a spectacular sight. Volunteers will choose a known Chimney Swift roosting location and stake it out before dusk, counting the Swifts as they enter the chimney, as darkness falls.  You can sign up for one night/one location at a time, or count each night of the weekend. If you know of an active roost that's not listed, message me and I'll add it to the sign up.

Chimney Swifts are in steep decline across North America, so let's help find out how they are doing in Washtenaw County. Bring your friends along, to show them how these very cool aerial insectivores share our cities and towns with us. NOTE: Occasionally the Swifts will not use a particular location on a given night due to a predator such as a Cooper's Hawk, or another issue. In that case, "no Swifts" will still be good information for us!  Email me with your results at [email protected] or [email protected], after the survey, and post it on eBird if you have an account.  Thanks for your help!!
