Chimney Swift

The chittering of swifts is a most welcome sound of early summer in Minnesota. This is the view from our balcony, where we watched their amazing aerobatic displays.

Ash-throated Flycatcher

Seen, and heard, while hiking along the Ubehebe crater in Death Valley.

Lucy's Warbler

Our one thousandth bird. Seen in May 2015 in Furnace Creek, Death Valley.
