Common Swifts circling and calling

© johnskovhus

"They often form 'screaming parties' during summer evenings where about 10-15 gather and fly around in circles, all calling out to each other. The call is a loud scream in two different tone pitches, of which the higher one is from the female and the lower one from the male."
