Do you remember the fantastic swifts I saw in Portland a few years ago? I was surprised to come upon a similar scene in New Orleans. I’m not sure if these are birds or bats or who knows what?? But they swooped dramatically while we waited for the Halloween parade to inch through the French Quarter. As it was Mischief Night, I found their appearance all the more eerie.
