There was a poster in the education section of the poster displays that had a

I was intrigued by your description and went looking for something along
those lines. You might find this interesting:
"I pulled over at the Loma bridge fishing access site just outside of the
UMBNM north of Fort Benton MT on Sunday afternoon around 4:30PM to
photograph the Cliff Swalows tending thier nests. What I found was an
enormous Bull Snake fishing for Cliff Swallows from 30 feet above the
racing Missouri River. I observed it for over 2 hours slink in and out of
about 5 nests consuming the chicks."
