April arrives

Well it is April and a couple of my favorite birds have returned.
The Chimney Swifts were over my house on April 1. I just completed my column on the amazing birds the day before so I was trilled to hear and see them overhead. I don’t have a photo of the birds. Years ago I followed Chimney Swift for a seasons. I sketched these wonderful birds. I found it awhile back and scan it and did some play with the background.

The next bird arrived on April 4th here. These Great Crested Flycatchers are peaking down from their high perch on the magnolia tree. What a great call they have. This is one of the most common summer birds around.
