This photo was taken last year when there was a great deal of smoke in the air and it got dark early. These birds went into the chimney sooner than they usually did. It has always been a pleasure to watch these acrobatic flyers. They were a nuisance for my neighbors. Earlier this summer, screens were placed over the chimney, These birds can no longer roost here. I miss watching them. I hope they find another place nearby.
