Chinmney Swift Watch This Weekend

UPDATE: The word from the swift watchers is that the birds have either moved on or moved to other chimneys, and there's not much to see. Here's hoping for a better watch next year.

As you're out snapping shots for DILOA this weekend, don't forget to check out the chimney swifts of the annual Asheville Chimney Swift Watch, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Word is the swifts have moved from their spot at the Grove Arcade, so this year's swift watch(es) are on the 5th floor of the Civic Center parking deck.

Park there and look towards City Hall, where the swifts are circling a chimney in the Tyler Building on Walnut St.

Swift Watch volunteers will be there with Swift Watch t-shirts and DVDs of the swifts, 5,000 strong, flying into the Grove Arcade.
