Baltimore Bird Club
First in a series of monthly feature presentations and slide shows. Tonight: “The Ordinary, Extraordinary Chimney Swift” presented by Joan Cwi. Although the hummingbird is the closest taxonomic relative to the swift, swifts certainly did not inherit the hummingbird’s “pretty” genes. But these plain, little birds are extraordinary in so many ways. We will discuss this particular species in regard to anatomy, speed, dexterity, nesting and migration based on sixteen years of research and observation during the Baltimore Bird Club’s migration swift watches. Free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 PM for socializing and snacks, lecture starts about 7:20 PM.
