Thanks. I can stop taking the dramamine now.

Mom has chimney swifts that come down to the fireplace glass and yell at us. When Jes was two, she could hear the babies in the chimney making their crazy baby bird racket, and she was sore afraid. We told her it was just the baby birds crying "mommy-ommy-ommy", but she still wouldn't go in the room with the fireplace.
