Thanks to everyone who came out to the Swift Watch at the Rooftop Garden Lounge in Fountain Square last night! We had a great turnout with nearly 30 attendees! Hopefully everyone was able to learn something new about Chimney Swifts and had a chance to talk with our host for the evening, Jessica Helmbold.

Here’s a video of the Chimney Swift colony from last night. (We got to see a few Common Nighthawks too! ) We hope that everyone had a great time.

If you missed the event last night, be sure to join us next year! It is one of our favorite events to host!
