GUIDELINES

Locate a Chimney Swift or Vaux's Swift roost in your area.
On one night over the weekend of September 8, 9, 10, you observe the roost at dusk and estimate the number of swifts that enter.
When you have your number, contact us with your results.


Please include the following:


  • Number of swifts counted
  • Time (and time zone)
  • Date
  • Location
  • Address: city, state/province
  • Broad description of the site, e.g. school, warehouse, residence, Chimney Swift Tower, etc.
  • Weather conditions may also be reported.

Email Us!


We will continue to update the results through the end of September.

Thank you for your support of Chimney Swift conservation.
We look forward to hearing from you!
