Demolition is pending for a roost chimney in the Florence area of Northeast Omaha. The Florence Home at 7900 North 30th Street is slated for demolition.
The destruction would remove a chimney that has been known to be used as a roost by chimney swifts at least back to 1991, according to a neighborhood bird watcher. He indicated that more than hundred have been seen using the large 6x6 bricks chimney.
This rooftop vantage point would provide a perfect spot on a fine evening to watch the arrival and descent of the swifts into their night's roost.
It is not known at this time when the building will be razed.
