Virtual Chimney Swift Count Night at NPD

  • Time: 9:30 pm

All of the birds, none of the bug bites”

Watching the Chimney Swifts come to roost in the ventilation stack at the Nuclear Power Demonstration (NPD) site has become something we look forward to each year. Since 2016, we’ve invited our communities to join us to experience possibly the largest Chimney Swift roost in Canada.

If you’ve participated in previous years, you know. The Chimney Swift Count Nights at NPD are pretty special.

May marks the month the Chimney Swifts return to their seasonal habitat and this year is no different, except it is. While Chimney Swifts don’t need to practice social distancing, we do. So we’ve decided to bring the Chimney Swift Count Night to a screen near you.

CNL will host a virtual Chimney Swift Count Night on Tuesday, June 01, 2021. Tune in to our Facebook page or through MS Teams at 8:30 p.m. EDT to catch the livestream.

No registration required.
