“The chimney swift uses its saliva as glue to stick twigs together while building
his nest. In ancient times, they built nests inside hollow trees, and today more
commonly they use abandoned chimneys for that purpose. Recently I discovered
a chimney swift’s nest on the old wallpaper of an upper hall in an abandoned
farmhouse. In this case, the old house has provided shelter to a new
family.The small fast-flying chimney swift is identified by its characteristic
flying cigar profile. Swifts breed across much of eastern North America.
