Learn all about Chimney Swifts from Linnea Rowse, Conservation Program Coordinator, Michigan Audubon.

About this Event

Chimney Swifts, an insect-eating bird species in steep population decline, depend on us for their nesting and migratory roosting habitat – chimneys! Learn about Chimney Swifts – their habits, how to identify these fast-flying birds, and where to find them, as well as how you can help these special birds in your neighborhood. As part of Michigan Audubon’s Bird-friendly Communities program, our collective community effort to help Chimney Swifts is part of a suite of urban bird conservation projects focused on reconnecting urban communities with birds and the environment for the benefit of all. Now more than ever, urban environments must be reimagined as functional wildlife habitat. Learn how and why to do bird conservation in your community!

Linnea is an avid birder, and though she doesn’t like to pick favorites, she really appreciates the beauty of warblers and the subtlety of flycatchers. She grew up in Minnesota and feels lucky to have parents who encouraged her to get outdoors and got her involved with birding and other outdoor pursuits at an early age. Linnea has been working in the avian conservation field for the past 13 years and has been with Michigan Audubon since June 2018. Michigan Audubon’s core mission aligns well with Linnea’s own values – to connect birds and people, and to do so by employing sound conservation science, research, outreach, and education, and Linnea continues to enjoy meeting and working with like-minded people in Michigan.
