Abstract:
Brown-Headed Nuthatch (Sitta pusilla) and Chimney Swift (Chaetura pelagica) are both losing their habitat due to human progress. Many electric co-op members are working to reverse that trend by building birdhouses and nesting places for them. The efforts to provide homes for the birds are detailed.

Abstract:
The North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences has developed a new program called Project Chimney Swift. With their help, students at a local middle school began observing the behavior of chimney swift birds and even installed an experimental nesting tower at the museum. They hope this will encourage swift habitat preservation and add to what very little is known about these birds.

Abstract:
The Chimney Swift, a migratory bird that nests in North Carolina in early April, is well-known for their chimney roosting habits. These birds collect by the thousands in chimneys across North Carolina from dusk until dawn. With the disappearance or capping of chimneys in residential areas, conservationists have begun designing towers made from brick or concrete for the swifts to live in.
