Chimney Swift

Chimney Swifts are very small birds with slender bodies and long, narrow wings. They have round heads with short necks and tails. These small birds are dark gray all over. Chimney Swifts eat airborne insects like flies, bugs, bees, beetles, craneflies and other insects.

Chimney Swifts are typically found in urban settings throughout the United States and Canada. They nest in chimneys, hollow trees or caves. However, during migration these small birds are found in warmer climates and forage over forests and open coastal regions.

This species is listed as near threatened due to its long-term, overall decline. The population has been seen to decline by 65% since 1966.
