Swift Night Out 2017: Dublin
August 13 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Come see the spectacle as Chimney Swifts fly into the large chimney at Sells Middle School to roost for the night!
In past years, we’ve seen tens, hundreds, even thousands of Chimney Swifts flock above the school, swirling round and round, then diving into the chimney. How many will show up this year? Come find out, and help us count how many swifts enter the chimney. Families are welcome. No hiking involved, just sit and watch the show!
The swifts will start entering the chimney a little before dusk, so meet in the parking lot of the school at 7:00 pm to hear about swift behaviors from Darlene Sillick as you wait for the show. Binoculars are nice if you have them, but you can see the show without them. Be sure to bring your lawn chairs, water, and mosquito repellent. We’ll count swifts rain or shine, so dress for the weather.
