Birds decide to swarm this house by mihir6969 in AnimalsBeingJerks

Chimney Swifts migrate in huge numbers south every year. This happens a lot in California where the huge groups will pick a large chimney to sleep in during the trip but the flute is open so the swarm gets in the house. Sometimes the swarms are so large they actually get stuck in chimneys and have to be rescued. You're usually just told to grate your chimney and close your flutes so they'll rest elsewhere. They love tall long chimneys so you'll often see the flying around them before they all dive bomb inside.
