There is nothing like a nest of baby Chimney Swift to bring even the most accomplished wildlife rehabilitators to their knees — caring for Chimney Swifts is difficult.
This latest edition is the result of more than 20 years of research and rehabilitation with one of the least known of our North American breeding migratory birds. In 53 pages it contains information necessary to help the rehabilitator successfully hand-rear Chimney Swifts from the initial acquisition to final release back into the wild population.
Rehabilitation and Conservation of Chimney Swifts also contains valuable information on preserving existing habitat and creating new nesting and roosting structures.
8 1/2 x 11 53 pp. 50+ photos, illustrations, graphs and tables.
Chimney Swifts are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Rehabilitation and handling of any migratory bird (including Chimney Swifts) requires permits from the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service and local state wildlife agencies.
