Annapolis Valley Register



On page A04 of the July 15 edition of the Annapolis Valley Register, in the story entitled ‘Bridgetown’s chimney swifts have returned,’ there were two inaccuraci­es. Maggie Rice, who has been monitoring the chimney swift activity and recorded a high count on May 30, saw 1,100 birds, not 11,000. Additional­ly, she mentioned she also had taken an interest in another insectivor­e. It was the common nighthawk, not the black nighthawk as was mentioned in the story. The common nighthawk’s population numbers have decreased considerab­ly over the last 50 years, but it’s not listed as an endangered species. The Register apologies for any inconvenie­nce or confusion this may have caused.
