Swifting the Night Away

Every September the Vaux's Swifts roost in the chimney of the Chapman Elementary School in NW Portland on their way south for the fall. At sunset thousands of them gather and spiral down the chimney swaying and pulsing with all the elegance of a firework display or a ballet.

I went last week and made this drawing. Enjoy!

This is very talented, but you made Alexis look like a scary old witch. Keep up the good work.

I made nothing! Thank you for your words though. I look forward to hearing your latest musics!
