Chimney swifts have returned to Geneseo!

Yesterday afternoon, for the first time this year, I heard the distinctive chitter chatter of chimney swifts in the skies over Geneseo!

The swifts have returned from their wintering grounds in South America and will soon be choosing nesting sites in our area. Some may continue their spring journey farther northward, while others may choose to spend the summer here in Geneseo. Soon students in the Geneseo Chimney Swift Project will begin monitoring the swifts to locate their nesting sites on and around campus.
