  17. Chimney swift project asks Manitobans to preserve habitat for sooty bird
    Threatened species has undergone massive population declines over last 60 years, biologist says

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    It used to be the case that chimney swifts nested deep inside the rotten, hollowed-out trunks of dying old growth trees. They build bracket nests using twigs and saliva, which they stick to the sides of vertical surfaces. As forests were cleared for developments, the birds adapted to urban environments by nesting in chimneys but that habitat is disappearing as well.
    Modern furnace guidelines generally suggest building owners cap or line old chimneys to prevent anything from getting inside. Over time, chimneys have also been torn down, replaced or fallen into varying states of disrepair, jeopardizing the future of the chimney swift species.
