Spring is back, which means chimney swifts are returning to the area to build nests and raise young. Chimney swifts are small bird that spend most of their time in flight, but do eventually slow down to build nests and make homes for their eggs. Unfortunately, they typically choose the steep interior walls of your chimney to do so! As you can imagine, this is a less than ideal set-up once you want to put your fireplace to use again, and it isn’t safe situation for the chimney swifts either.
Here at Magic Broom Chimney Sweeps, we have solutions for you. Hire us for your next inspection, and we’ll let you know if any unwanted guests are present in your chimney. Once we’re through, we’ll provide you with the best solutions for making your next burning season as enjoyable as possible!
Can I Have Chimney Swifts Removed?
If chimney swifts have already set up camp in your chimney and you’re wondering how you can get them out, the simple answer is: You can’t. Chimney swifts are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, so removing them or their young is illegal and could land you in some trouble. Rather, you should wait until the birds have left for winter, then remove the nests.
