In response to self distancing and shelter-in-place rules for Alabama during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering free online courses as a public service to help folks continue to learn about the birds they love! While these will initially be offered for free, please support our work if you are able and make a tax-deductible donation at alaudubon.org/give. Please make sure to comply with all state and local social-distancing regulations. See our full COVID-19 statement here.

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. She will also provide an overview on our community science project, Alabama SwiftWatch, and information on how to participate.
