    I chose to drive to NOLA for a conference so that I could scout some of the refuges for fall and winter when birds have migrated to the refuges. I did not expect too much but I did get a few more species.

    Thanks Louis. The photos were taken at 3 site on two refuges. I am definitely going back there after the fall migration. My thoughts are to visit the Sabine NWR then the Cameron Prairie and Lacassine NWR one day. At the end of the day, we would drive on to Lafayette to tour the Atchafalaya basin. There are some tour guides who specialize in swamp tours.
