CAMERON PARISH, SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA
NEOTROPICAL MIGRANTS, AQUATIC SPECIES & RED-COCKADED WOODPECKER6 April 2018 - 13 April 2018, 8 days & 7 nights
This is the Louisiana counterpart of High Island Texas, minus the crowds of people. We'll spend a good part of our time in Cameron Parish, the state's premier birding locale. It is positioned in the extreme southwest corner of Louisiana on the Texas border, and has vast marshlands and beautiful, bird-filled beaches. It is famous for its migrants and rarities. Ancient wooded ridges known as cheniers can abound with migrant songbirds. Because of its location in the very center of the Mississippi flyway, nearly half of eastern North America's migratory songbirds pass through Louisiana each spring. To help round out the week, we'll also visit Sabine National Wildlife Refuge, Holly Beach, Old River Wildlife Management Area, Kisatchie National Forest, and Louisiana's famous rice fields for shorebirds, waterfowl, long-legged waders, and rails. We will drive into Texas one day for a visit to Sabine Woods and Sea Rim State Park. Expect to see 175 or more species on this incredible tour. Our focus will be migrant songbirds and the abundant aquatic species, with a host of specialty birds. There will be LOTS of birds, everywhere we go. You will save $200 if you participate in both the Louisiana Tour AND the Dauphin Island, Alabama Tour that follows. Bob Schutsky is the scheduled leader of both tours. We will take a maximum of seven participants. On rare occasion we may extend the maximum to ten participants.
