9 May 2014: Swifts

“It also bathes on the wing, gliding above the surface of a body of water, briefly smacking its breast into the water, then flying off again, shaking its feathers as it goes.”

The swift sings the same way it flies,
a burst of chittering speed then a turn or pause,   
between bursts.
