Calling all Citizen Scientists to identify Chimney Swift Roosts – Chimney Swifts are gathering in large numbers now for fall migration and are looking for roosting sites. New Hope Audubon needs your help to identify locations where they roost in our area, so we can help stem their decline as their roosts sites are lost. If you know of a roost or nest site please complete NC Audubon’s survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WTQ9H6V Follow this link for more information about helping Chimney Swifts.
