ONLINE Course: Audubon at Home: Chimney Swifts


Chimney swifts at dusk by Greg Harber

June 22 , 5:30 pm 6:30 pm

Free

Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CDT Monday, June 21st, and space is limited.

Registration is now closed. Check out our upcoming events here.

While this is a free event, please support our work if you are able by making a tax-deductible donation at alaudubon.org/give.

Join us to learn all about one of our favorite birds, the chimney swift! Our Science & Conservation Director, Dr. Lianne Koczur, will discuss the general ecology of chimney swifts, threats that the species faces, and conservation efforts for swifts here in Alabama.

Interested in taking action to help conservation efforts on behalf of chimney swifts? Join also to learn about the Alabama SwiftWatch community science program—why we started it, how you can participate, the data we have collected so far, and what to expect for this fall. Whether you are a current SwiftWatch volunteer or are considering signing up, this will be a great start to the 2021 SwiftWatch season, which starts at the end of July!

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Tuesday, June 22nd, from 5:30–6:30 p.m. CDT. It will be an hour-long online course with time at the end for questions.

Registration: To register, click on the button above. If you don’t yet have a username and password, simply click the “X” on the pop up and fill out the basic form. If you do have a login, please use it as this helps us tremendously on our end! You should receive an automated email upon registering.

Please note, you will receive a separate email with the Zoom webinar instructions before the class (once registration closes). You’ll need the link or webinar ID and password from this email to join the meeting. In the event the link does not work for you, you may need to go to the Zoom website and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Please double check your email and make sure it’s a valid email address prior to completing your registration. We’ve had several kick-backs when sending the Zoom meeting instructions out to registrants, and you won’t be able to join the webinar without this information. Thanks!

Questions? Email the Programs Assistant.

FAQ’s:

I did not receive the email with the Zoom meeting instructions. Please double-check the email address you enter when registering for the online event as that is where the instructions will be sent (once registration closes). You may need to add us to your email provider’s safe sender list in the event it goes to spam. Also, please contact us by the morning of the event so that we have time to address your issue as generally you should have received the email right after registration closes.

The link doesn’t appear to be working. You may need to go to the Zoom website (https://zoom.us) and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Also, wait until just a couple of minutes before the meeting is supposed to begin to try to enter the meeting. It will not work if you try to join the meeting half an hour before it’s scheduled to begin, for instance. You can also check to make sure your computer meets the system requirements by clicking here.

Will this be recorded, and will I have access to view it later? Yes, this course will be recorded and made available on our Vimeo page.

Is there a waiting list? We do not have waiting lists for our online events at this time.
