Local Boy Scout, Robbie Sivill from Troop 188 is building a Chimney Swift House at Southwood Nature Preserve for his Eagle Scout Project.
Sivill's project plans were reviewed and approved by both the Parks & Recreation Commission and the City Council. He plans to complete his Chimney Swift House this summer.
Chimney Swifts, are a species of birds with tiny bodies and curving wings that spend almost their entire life airborne Chimney Swifts are known to fly up to 140 miles a day. When Chimney Swifts lands, it can't perch—it clings to vertical walls inside chimneys or in hollow trees. Chimney Swifts have suffered sharp declines as chimneys fall into disuse across the country.
Sivill's Chimney Swift House will be a nice addition to Southwood Nature Preserve.
