3rd Annual Chimney Swift Watch

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usFrom PARC (People Advocating Real Conservancy):

"It's time for the Chimney Swift Watch. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 23, 24 and 25, at 7 P.M., we will gather on O. Henry Avenue to watch as the chimney swifts soar high above the city until they swirl into the chimney at dusk. Please join us near the Asheville Citizen-Times building and see the swifts go into the Grove Arcade chimney.

The show starts at 7 P.M. and will be all over around 8 P.M. The swifts go in slightly earlier if it is cloudy or raining, later if the skies are clear."

Or you could come sit on my back porch any evening. In the deep South, swifts are called "bullbats," and "bullbat time" means it's time to bring out the cocktails.

We went and watched the birds on Friday and they put on a great show! My 2 year old daughter did a dance on the sidewalk for the birds and ended up getting quoted in the paper! I'm just glad she didn't quote me... "Man, we are so gonna get crapped on!!" :-)
