I was about to get in the shower, so I opened the window of the bathroom so the window wouldn't get steamy.
I glanced out and saw... um... this.
Swallows I think, at least that's what they looked like.
Lots of them.
Flying in a circle.
They were chasing eachothers tails in a giant ring, like a huge wheeling donut in the sky.
I made the girl come out so she could see them too.
We watched and pontificated for at least 5 minutes.

Ahhh! Swallows! I love those little guys, and the aerobatic maneouvres that they perform as the chase down insects.
They are most definitely my favourite species of bird.. apart from chicken and cornish game hens of course but obviously for different reasons altogether. ;-)
Hey.. Did'ja know that Budgies got their name (Budgerigar) from the Aboriginal word Betchariga (spelling??) which means "Good Meal" ?
Yup, honest to goodness!
