This is an event to count the amazing Chimney Swifts that roost in chimneys prior to undertaking their fall migration to South America! While wearing masks and socially distancing, meet fellow bird enthusiasts.
Join Houston Audubon for this family-friendly Swift Night Out event. Help count the number of Chimney Swifts migrating through the Houston area. Watch Chimney Swifts swoop and soar over their roosts and count them as they enter their chimneys. There can be over 500 Chimney Swifts in some locations at this time of year. Community Swift Night Out helps to determine where Chimney Swifts are in Houston area and monitor populations long-term.

When: Sunday, 9/20/2020, 7:15 PM (dusk at 7:45 PM)
Instructions: Don’t forget to have a folding chair, mosquito repellent, and binoculars. Meet in the main parking lot and visit the Houston Audubon Chimney Swift information booth. Houston Audubon will hold a raffle. The person who comes closest to guessing the number of Chimney Swifts entering the chimney will win a fun prize.
