2010 is the third year for the Chimney Watch program. We have already learned a great deal about Chimney Swifts throughout the eastern US. Most importantly, in our North Carolina study site, there is a disturbingly high rate of chimney capping with 14 percent of all available nesting chimneys being capped in a single year. During 2010, we plan to continue to monitor chimney capping rates and expand our efforts to include research into important habitats for chimney swift feeding.
