Information about the Chimney Swift:
The Chimney Swift is a member of the Icteridae family, which are the swifts. Their name comes from their preference to build their nests in the chimneys of the eastern US and Canada. While they spend their summers in North America, they will migrate thousands of miles to spend the winters in the northwestern parts of South America. They are smaller birds, being about 4.7-5.9 inches long (12-15 cm) with a wingspan of about 11-12 inches. They weigh roughly .6-1.1 ounces (17-30 grams.) These birds are highly gregarious and are often observed in massive flocks, usually in and around the chimney in where they build their nests. While the species is thought to number around 15 million, they are considered threatened because their population has dropped precipitously over the last few decades.
