The Stephen Stackpole Memorial Chimney Swift Live Cam

This live feed was underwritten by Detroit Audubon in partnership with the Swift Sanctuary in Farmington, MI

Thanks for viewing the Stephen Stackpole Chimney Swift LiveCam. The swifts will be starting their journey south soon and we should see more and more birds entering the chimney at dusk each night. The best time to view them will be in September, when we hold our Annual Swift Night Out event!
