Chimney Swift populations are steeply declining, with a 53% percent drop between 1966 and 2007 in the United States and a 26% decline in Vermont over 25 years. To better understand what Vermont habitats are important to Chimney Swifts, we are working with Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department to monitor Vermont's population.
Help make a difference for Chimney Swifts in Vermont by joining the North Branch Nature Center's Chimney Swift Tower Building event at BirdFest. Visit the "BirdCraft Tent" between 10 am and 2 pm to participate in this community project.
