A gar fish, fox squirrels (Sciurus niger), boat-tailed grackles (Quiscalus major) and an American robin (Turdus migratorius) are common in the bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) swamp ("Cypress Lake") on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

The robin selects for its nest material appropriate strands of Spanish moss, which is the bromeliad Tillandsia usneoides, a common epiphyte hanging from the branches of the bald cypress, and decayed straps of vegetation. The squirrels and many birds use the pneumatophores or cypress knees to rest. These cypress knees are covered with lichens. Filmed on July 5th, 2008 by Suzanne Fredericq
