By Vivian Steele The Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition (TWRC), in cooperation with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, has undertaken a new exciting and challenging project. They are planning a pilot program by which orphaned Chimney Swift chicks will be introduced into an existing colony—perhaps yours. TWRC volunteers are frequently faced with the difficult task of caring for young Chimney Swift chicks when they tumble out of their nests, or when the nests themselves fall out of the chimney due to excess creosote deposits. Careless chimney sweepers sometimes knock the nests down. Disturbing nesting birds in this fashion is a violation of state and federal law. Some surviving birds are rescued and brought to the TWRC Wildlife Animal Shelter in the Town & Country Mall at I-10 west and Beltway 8, where a trained staff stabilizes and treats these chicks. However, TWRC has a new plan and you may be able to help. Unlike many other avian species, adult swifts readily accept and care for orphaned nestlings introduced into their nest colony. Those chicks which rehabilitators consider to be viable will be placed in an active chimney and their progress will be monitored. If you have nesting swifts in your chimney, consider participating as a foster family. Chicks usually fledge within three weeks. They join the adults in flight and feeding school and may even assist in the rearing of an additional brook later in the season. With your permission and assistance, a permitted rehabilitator will be assigned to place birds and monitor the progress at your home. Call the TWRC shelter if you would like to participate in this new program! (468- TWRC).
