There are an estimated 1.5 billion (plus) red-billed quelea in the world.

When I read about the passenger pigeon weighing down tree branches with their sheer numbers, I think of quelea--the only thing I can personally relate those historical references to. What a beast, what a sight.

Tens of thousands of red-billed queleas congregating at the quarry. This site is the only large surface water available in the area for several months.

Quelea masses are an awesome sight to behold, and I'm skeptical that still photographs do the scene justice. Will try to upload a video and provide a link here.
