Yellow Rails and Cajun Country 2015

 

Trip  |   Rice Fields  |  Refuges 

Susan Hardy and I led a Joppa Flats trip back to southwestern Louisiana from November 3 - 9, 2015.

The land of rice, rails, Cajuns, and boudin/jambalaya/gumbo/crawfish pie/etouffee did not disappoint: Fabulous birds (164 species), food, and hospitality.

A fun time was had by all, and everyone saw Yellow Rails!

We visited these locations:
