Many city dwellers are oblivious that they share their neighbourhood with a rare and fascinating bird for part of each year. But once you learn to recognize their chattering voice and crescent-shaped wings, you can’t miss the Chimney Swifts zooming overhead! This year on Giving Tuesday, we’re asking you to help Chimney Swifts and other rapidly-declining bird species that need urgent conservation action.
Get ready, SwiftWatchers! The 2019 SwiftWatch season is rapidly approaching as Chimney Swifts make their long migration north from South America.
Citizen Scientists in Bird Studies Canada’s SwiftWatch program fill critical information gaps by monitoring and acting as stewards for Chimney Swifts and their habitat.
