Mike wrote a story about Chimney Swifts for NEBRASKAland’s June 2018 magazine.
“One fall evening while walking the dogs around the neighborhood and Irving Middle School in Lincoln, Nebraska, a small group of parents waiting for their kids at soccer practice were pointing up to a massive vortex of swirling chattering silhouettes descending into the school’s towering chimney. “Look at all the bats!” I heard someone say. At first, I thought they were, too. But as we watched I realized these were birds, and they were disappearing into the chimney not coming out of it for the night And they were using a nearby church’s chimney too. I went home and did some quick research. They were a huge migrating flock of chimney swifts.”
