Tree Swallow

A group of Tree Swallows is known as a “stand” of swallows, as pictured below all lined up on a branch. That’s boring. They should be known as a “squadron,” also pictured below, in landing formation, but that’s already taken by the pelicans. Hmmm… could they both be squadrons? Would the pelicans really mind sharing? I think not.
