It is time for A Swift Night Out September 2008!
As summer draws to a close and the swifts have finished raising their young, these fascinating aerial acrobats begin to congregate in communal roosts prior to their migration in the fall. Some roosts may consist of an extended family group of a half a dozen birds or so, but the larger sites can host hundreds or even thousands of swifts!
We encourage you to involve your local Audubon chapters, bird clubs, scout groups, and neighbors in this exhilarating spectacle. August was a great success, and the September event is just around the corner!
