Chimney Swift Roost Watch

September 29 @ 6:45 pm - 7:30 pm


During fall migration, Chimney Swifts roost together in groups that often number in the hundreds or more. In the evening, as the sky really begins to darken, the birds swarm to the roost site, circle, and begin to drop into their communal roost. 

And what is their modern roosting habitat? Chimneys, of course! This genuinely exciting birding spectacle occurs right in the heart of Columbia.

Columbia Audubon is hosting 3 Chimney Swift Roost Watch Trips and you are invited! Here are the dates: 

Tuesday, September 19th 7:00 pm

Friday, September 29th 6:45 pm

Monday, October 9th 6:30 pm

Meet at the corner of N 7th and E Ash in Columbia, Missouri. Be sure to go to the event website for more information: Chimney Swift Roost Watch (1st of 3) | Columbia Audubon Society (columbia-audubon.org)
