On The Wing will air on Alaska One Public Television Tuesday Sept. 15 at 10:30 p.m. and Wednesday September 16 at 4:30 a.m.
On The Wing tells the story of Portland's Chapman Swifts. The Chapman Swifts are Vaux Swifts that have been roosting in the chimney of Portland's Chapman Elementary School each fall since the early 80's. Each night during their residency, the Swifts put on an amazing show for thousands of people. On The Wing tells the story of both the birds and their cult following. It also conveys the universal messages that protecting habitat everywhere is important and everyone can have an impact on their surrounding environment if they just get involved.
