I don't know if you get Masonry Construction magazine, but if you don't, you might want to check out this website:


Seems as though there is an endangered species that relies on masonry chimneys for existence. Might be a way for the tree huggers to stop fighting masonry chimneys. A longshot but who knows?

Hi Folks,

We saw our last Chimney Swifts in Austin, TX on October 23. Most of them are pretty much on their way to South America by now. What was your latest sighting this season?

I have forwarded you a copy of Jim Sweeney's great photo of a new Chimney Swift tower. If you or your organization have set up a tower this year, please send us a photo with a narrative. We'd like to share your efforts with all of our Associates in the next issue of your newsletter, Chaetura.

Thanks for all of the reports and support this season.

Best Regards,


Paul D. Kyle and Georgean Z. Kyle
