Chimney Swift Roost Counts – Members Only

May 21 @ 8:00 PM 9:30 PM

Chris Risley will once again be coordinating counts of Chimney Swifts entering their roost on five days this spring. PFN members are invited to join him. Come watch 80 to 100 Chimney Swifts enter a roost chimney in downtown Peterborough while learning more about this fascinating little bird. Watchers stand on the top floor of a parking garage and observe the swifts enter one or more chimneys at 30 minutes before official sunset. The watches last about an hour. Bring a lawn chair if you wish. The data are contributed to Project SwiftWatch coordinated by Birds Canada to learn about this declining species. After May 5, contact Chris if you would like to join the watch at ([email protected]).
