Chimney Swifts, nature’s pesticide free insect collectors, are nesting in a chimney near you right now. They are a protected bird, hence we cannot mess with them; but really, they are super beneficial and will be gone before you know it. Have a quick look at what a nest of these beauties look like!
Today Tony from Animal Trackers Wildlife Shows you want the next of the Chimney Swift looks like. This protected bird species is truly remarkable. Because they are a protected species we cannot do anything to remove them if they get into your chimney. The good news is these birds will migrate south in the fall, in which we then recommend installing a new chimney cap to prevent them from coming back next season.

They have a glue like saliva that they use to “cement” their nests to chimney walls and rock faces.
These birds feed solely on insects such as mosquitos.
