4 Million Tree Swallows

Two weeks ago I had the great pleasure of visiting LSU as a potential grad school home for my future self. When I mentioned to anyone that I wanted to go birding they all started muttering about going to visit some swallow roost. I missed out on that chance because of a rainy weekend. Luckily, we have youtube to allow us to live vicariously and visit this very same Tree Swallow roost in Louisiana currently estimated to contain 4 to 5 million swallows. Wow.


  1. That is utterly insane! I've heard about a place in Connecticut where they do the same thing.

  2. I have never seen anything like this! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Excellent nature blog! Kudos!
