Migratory Birds who span approximately 7000 miles from the Amazon jungle of South America to the north country of New York State.

First Study of the Chimney Swifts was made by Walker A. La Rowe of the Northville Rotary Club. Mr. La Rowe, after studying migratory data originated a welcome celebration for the return of the Chimney Swifts to Northville on May 6 each year, which was also the birthday of Frank B. Hubbal, the original owner of this property.

These birds can be observed any fair-weather evening at dusk during the months of May through mid-August, first circling the chimney, creating a funneling appearance before dropping inside to cling to the bricks and mortar for the night.
