Reminds me of the swifts at Chapman school in Portland. It's fun to see.

The best place? Why, the internet, of course.

Is it weird that I'm really looking forward to seeing the bats do this when I'm down there?

We have a big flock of swifts that swirl around the tall brick chimney that stands high above the elementary school behind my house. It is pretty spectacular to see them, at dusk, swarming around, waiting their turn to get into the chimney.

We're in the path of birds (don't know species) that likely number in the hundreds of thousands at a time. It is mesmerizing to watch them pass over and can take several minutes.

I've seen something like that in the rural areas of South Florida in the winter months.

You should be able to find large flock of European Starlings across all of the lower 48 (they're introduced). I see the largest flocks in winter near agricultural fields. The flocking behavior seems most pronounced in the very late afternoon as the birds head back to their roost.
