A short video: We can't usually pinpoint the day each year when the Chimney Swifts return from wintering in South America. One day, we'll just began noticing them soaring overhead. In the new, quieter Quarter, their squeaky-wheel hunting song sailed in through the open doors to the balcony at twilight on April 1st. We ran out to welcome them home. They fly so fast and high, there's not really much to see on this vid, but at least you can hear them.
