Birds have nested inside my fireplace chimney, and a number of babies have hatched. Will they be able to fly up out of the chimney when they are old enough, or should I attempt a rescue operation? I plan to remedy the situation before next summer.
Well, they may be confused robins, but more likely they’re chimney swallows, otherwise known as swifts. They get their name from their nesting habits, and we’re sure those babies are programmed to take flight when ready.
