    Maybe the S. leuc colonized the spot when a seed rode in on the foot of a swallow. An African swallow could probably carry the entire plant.

    Would that be a fully laden African Swallow?

    But african swallows are non-migratory! A european swallow could carry a seed perhaps, as it is much smaller than a coconut!

    Funny, when European Swallow was mentioned I thought of Cynanchum rossicum not Hirundo rustica. An English House Sparrow or the European Starling could very well be responsible. The English House Sparrows feed their nestlings insects and many have learned that CPs are a veritable buffet and happen to additionally be easy pickins. European Starlings like the small seed produced by the flowers. I do not believe it is inconceivable that a bird did this however it seems more likely a staff member did it. I wish people would stop introducing non native plants to natural areas. I see the sedges and grasses there as well as the coniferous trees in the background. Looks as if they have some nice weeds too but doesn't everybody.

    Wait a minute! Suppose two swallows carried it together?
