Rest and Food for the Weary – Song Bird Fall-out

As we pulled into Peveto Woods Bird and Butterfly Sanctuary on the southwest Louisiana coast in Cameron Parish, we wondered whether warblers would be dropping in. A good day for birders means an exhausting trip for migrants.

  1. Judy,

    I found your blog as a link to Peveto Woods Preserve near
    Holly Beach, La. I visited that place about 2 weeks after
    you and was fortunate enough to find a painted bunting, of
    which I took about 30 photographs.(Digital, RAW format with
    an *ist Pentax 35mm digital w/ 170-500mm zoom telephoto)
    If you like beachcombing as well as birding, Peveto Woods
    is an ideal place. As a resident of northern Louisiana,
    I had never visited SW Louisiana. (The Outback)
    I enjoy reading about your birding activities.
