Horicon Marsh Bird Club “Chimney Swifts” Presentation
November 15, 2018 @ 7:00 PM
Join members of the Horicon Marsh Bird Club on Thursday, November 15 at 7pm for a program on Chimney Swifts! You do not need to be a member to attend. Free and open to the public.
The Chimney Swift spends all of its life airborne unless roosting or on the nest. They are incapable of perching. Sandy Schwab is a Master Naturalist from Madison who chairs the Wisconsin Chimney Swift Working Group. In 2010, after retiring from a career in clinical research at the UW-Madison, Sandy began volunteering in wildlife rehabilitation at Dane County Humane Society’s Wildlife Center. She soon became intrigued by three baby chimney swifts and has spent the past eight years observing swifts and promoting awareness of this fascinating species. She will talk to us about the working group as well as the natural history of the swift and the challenges it faces, and what we can do to help.
The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located between Horicon and Mayville on Highway 28. The program will be in the lower level auditorium. Please use the lower entrance.
