Move Over Santa...the Chimney Swifts are Coming

Record #:
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.
