Swift Night Out

September 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A favorite event returns to The Durham. Join us on the Roof Tuesday, September 20, from 6:30-8pm for a front-row view as large swarms of chimney swifts begin to gather for their annual trip to South America and swarm, dive and roost at sunset into downtown chimneys. New Hope Audubon and Audubon North Carolina will be on hand with scopes, binoculars, and information about how to protect these endangered birds and their habitats.

6:30pm: We should be able to see swifts flying, feeding, and calling.

7:15pm: At sunset, the swifts move en masse, swarming around chimneys to roost.

Free and family-friendly!
