Allentown, PA, United States
I discovered this Chimney Swift nest as part of a bat survey in a City Park in Allentown PA in July of 2016. As the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society Habitat Committee Chairman, I have built several Chimney Swift towers throughout the park system, and they are my #1 species of conservation concern here. This nest is located in the stone chimney of a log cabin built in the 1720’s. Imagine how many little swifts may have fledged from this chimney in over 290 years!
Easily the best photo of a Chimney Swift nest I have seen in years (maybe ever). They’re just so hard to access. Cool!
Awesome shot Scott! Great conservation work too!!
When r they expected at Muhlenb lake or College?
Can u please update recent sitings, expectations ?
