Chimney Swift nesting season is upon us! Please help Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania (ASWP) monitor usage of its 150 Chimney Swift towers throughout the SW Pennsylvania Region. Chimney Swift towers provide nesting and roosting habitat for this important bird. If you see birds entering or near a tower, please take note of the tower ID number and submit your observations at www.aswp.org. There are 100 Chimney Swift towers in the Allegheny County Parks, along the riverfront in Millvale, and throughout parks and other community spaces. Check the map (link provided below) to find towers near you.
Nesting season is great time of year to observe the birds entering and exiting the towers throughout the day. Please help ASWP's Chimney Swift conservation efforts by helping us track tower usage. It doesn't take long and it's good for the birds!
