Into the chimney

In september Portland's people celebrate a huge swarm of swifts that rest in an old chimney. They gather around sunset to witness the birds entering their special rest area. 
Another smaller chimney is right here in Kenton. And though it's unknown to most of the people it gives shelter to another swarm. Today I went there and was able to watch that strange and beautiful scenario.
A bit like backwards smoke, a bit like falling leaves, in a delayed flight just before they disappear inside the narrow opening of the funnel of this ordinary looking building.

People pilgrimage there every evening. You cannot deny that this city is special!
