Impromptu Swift Night Out: Birmingham


Chimney Swift in front of the moon. Greg Harber.

September 22 , 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

No registration necessary.

Join us Thursday, September 22nd, for an impromptu Swift Night Out. We have been scouting chimneys around Birmingham and watching our migrating swifts come and go with the change in weather. Our volunteers have been seeing thousands of swifts at the chimney at Boutwell Auditorium, but we don’t know how long they’ll be here. So, join us Thursday for the show!!! Find more information on chimney swifts and our October 7th Swift Night Out here.

Details: Meetup will be at 6 p.m. at the top of the Boutwell Auditorium Parking Deck (801 19th St N, Birmingham, AL 35203). You can park in the deck (NOTE: $2 parking fee upon exit, credit card only) or park on the street and take the elevator up to the top. Sunset is at 6:44 p.m. so the swifts will start gathering just before then. Alabama Audubon staff will be there to talk about chimney swifts with you starting at 6 p.m. Free and open to all.

Accessibility: Wheelchair accessible and open to all abilities.

The trip leader:  Lianne Koczur will lead this trip. Feel free to email us with questions.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Through more than seventy-five years of conservation work in one of our nation’s most ecologically rich states, Alabama Audubon has seen firsthand how diversity strengthens natural communities. We believe that the same principle applies to human communities, which is why our organization is committed to providing equitable opportunities for all Alabamians to learn about and enjoy wild birds, their habitats, and the natural world. One of the best ways to support that belief is by valuing and actively seeking to strengthen diversity among our staff, our board, and our membership. To that end, Alabama Audubon welcomes the whole of our community to our work, and strives to make our programs, classes, and events open and accessible to all.
