We had a wonderful surprise last night! I wrote about the Chimney Swifts on little byrd vintage a couple of weeks ago...about the school they return to every year to roost. Last night I had just picked up the phone to call my mom, LD was out front with Oliver and he came running in the door and said the swifts are here! I was a little confused and had no idea what he was talking about but told my mom I'd call her back shortly. Outside, just a few houses away there were hundreds, probably thousands of little birds swirling in the sky, entering a chimney. We had heard a few years ago that there was a chimney here in the neighborhood that had yearly swifts but we had never seen them. I caught them as best as I could but nothing can compare with the site in real life. They fly around in a circle so fast it makes you dizzy and then occasionally one or two will dive into the chimney, as sunset nears more and more and quicker and quicker the birds enter the chimney, chirping all the while. Can you imagine what it must be like to live in that house? I think I would love it.
