birds in the chimney

by Tom Morton
(Granger, IN USA)

We live in a subdivision in northern Indiana. A few homeowners have reported birds nesting in the chimney for the last month or two. These birds seem pretty common in our area, and seem to be active at dusk and dart around as they fly as if chasing insects in the evening. They can be quite noisy in the chimney during the day. They are dark in color and the wings are somewhat pointy. What type of bird is this likely to be, and what ideas do you have to get them out of the chimney and keep them out?

I expect they are Chimney Swifts.
