Petoskey Audubon offers 12th Annual Swift Night OutName: Petoskey Audubon offers 12th Annual Swift Night OutDate: June 21, 2017Time: 8:45 PM - 10:00 PM EDTEvent Description:Petoskey Regional Audubon Society offers 12th Annual Swift Night Out this Wednesday, June 21
The public is invited to join Petoskey Regional Audubon Society Wednesday, June 21, to see Chimney Swifts return to roost at JC Penney’s Chimney. Bring a lawn chair to the west side of Howard Ave., just south of Mitchell St, across from Penney's in downtown Petoskey.
The first swifts typically enter the chimney around 9:15 - 9:30 p.m. and final enter by 10:00 p.m. Last year 30 people counted a total of 80 swifts going into the chimney.
This natural wonder takes place in downtown Petoskey each summer. Often mistaken for swallows, Chimney Swifts are busy birds that flutter and swoop to capture insects in town, along the Bear River and Little Traverse Bay. Unable to perch, Chimney Swifts spend most of their lives in flight.
As the name suggests, at night they often cling to the vertical sides of chimney interiors. Chimney Swift populations are in decline due to the disuse of chimneys across North America. Petoskey is fortunate to be the home of this useful and fascinating species.
The Chimney Swifts are Michigan summer residents only. In the fall swifts begin their 4,000 mile migration to South America by flying nonstop across the Gulf of Mexico.
The chimney swift spectacle goes unnoticed by most people. Here is a chance to amaze your friends and family with Chimney Swifts.
