FLYCATCHERS for BEGINNERS (with two Nature Manitoba Birders)
This workshop will cover the basics of identification of Manitoba’s flycatcher species. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the pitfalls of identification with this difficult group of birds. We hope that you will become more confident in the identification of the flycatchers you see in the field.

Chimney Swifts

Have you ever heard of Chimney Swifts?

Chimney Swifts are a unique bird that live nest in chimneys, clinging to the vertical walls with their long claws. Unfortunately, their populations are declining rapidly. The Manitoba Chimney Swift Initiative works to monitor swifts across the province and protect important swift habitat, including repairing old chimneys. We will talk about threats to Chimney Swifts, how to identify them, and the many ways you can contribute to swift conservation.
