The Chimney Swifts are coming! The Chimney Swifts are coming! What is a Chimney Swift you ask? The Chimney Swift, Chaetura pelagica, is a small, very agile, swallow-like, sooty- colored bird with long pointed wings. They look like a “flying cigar” with a short tail tipped with spines. You often hear their pleasing chippering sound before you see them. Chimney Swifts feed exclusively on insects caught while in flight. Our Manitoba swifts arrive in mid May.

On April 30, 1944 during a World War II training mission 4 soldiers crashed their plane in Riding Mountain National Park. We learned about this incredible historical story of strength and determination in our own backyard and want to share it with fellow geocachers. We plan on hiking out to the site of the plane wreckage. The wreckage is scattered over an area of about 25 metres. A plaque sits on the ground to commemorate the event.
