Swift Night Out

  • Cherokee Heights Middle School 4301 Cherokee Drive Madison, WI, 53711 United States (map)

Hundreds of chimney swifts use the brick chimney at Cherokee Heights Middle School for their nightly roost. "A Swift Night Out" is a continent-wide effort to raise awareness about chimney swifts and their need for roosting habitat. Bring a lawn chair and binoculars to observe and count swifts as they gather at communal roosts before fall migration to South America.

Note: Swifts have been known to change their preference for chimneys, so please check back for location changes.
