Seeing Chimney Swifts?

Our Chimney Swift Towers are located across the region - and we need your help letting us know if birds are using them. Report your sightings (or even no sightings) on our Chimney Swift reporting page. It's nesting time, so the Swifts will be actively using chimneys and towers - and they return to their nests around sunset.
