A last reminder that UConn and CT DEEP swift researchers will be tapping Flying Cigar Ale, playing Chimney Swift Bingo, and showing folks where swifts go to roost in two of the biggest roosts in the state, from 5:30 pm at the Willimantic Brewing Company tonight. This promises to be a big night: it's the peak of migration and there are hundreds of birds in both roosts. The brewery has stopped taking dinner reservations, but note that a Flying Cigar Ale standing in the bar is better than no Flying Cigar Ale at all! Also,  there are other restaurants in Willimantic; please do let whatever establishment you dine in know that you're there for the birds. If you aren't in the brewery, please join us in the brewery parking lot at 7:40 for the guided tour to roost watching!
