While at a red light in downtown Meriden today I observed 3 chimney swifts flying low, at tree top height.  It appeared that one tried to land on a branch, but when my brain woke up I realized that they were trying to snag small pieces, in flight,  for nesting material.  I was able to watch them for a bit, slowing down as they approach small bare branches, flying in and out of the trees. What cool, amazing birds!!
