Birding Tour: Louisiana

$1,675

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Oct 24, 2019

Join this private late-autumn tour on the Gulf Coast targeting Yellow Rails and other migrants and wintering species with Field Guides Inc and Maine Audubon.

Cajun country is one of the primary rice-growing regions of the US, and as such it provides many prairie and taiga pothole breeding birds their winter home: ducks, geese, bitterns, Sedge Wrens, LeConte's Sparrows, and secretive Yellow Rails. These species are found across much of the Southeast, but because of the rice-harvesting schedule of Cajun farmers, the chance of seeing them here is perhaps better than anywhere else--as the rice combines collect the lagniappe (extra) autumn crop, they flush the birds that are otherwise buried deep in marshy grass. In addition to the marsh birds, any hedgerow may have lingering or vagrant migrants, wintering sparrows, or some other surprise!

In the course of our long weekend, we'll also bird the coastal marshes, beaches, and cheniers (tree islands) for late seasonal migrants and wintering species, and we'll visit the nearby pine woods that are home to such southeastern specialties as Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Brown-headed Nuthatch, and Bachman's and maybe even wintering Henslow's sparrows. And don't forget your appetite: Louisiana is rightly known for its tasty cuisine! So why don't y'all come on down and visit?

Richard Louv’s landmark book, Last Child in the Woods, inspired an international movement to connect children and nature and has now sold over half a million copies. Co-founder of the Children & Nature Network and winner of the Audubon Medal, Louv has become the expert on radically improving mental and physical health through our relationship to the natural world. 

In his newest book, OUR WILD CALLING: How Connecting with Animals Can Transform our Lives—and Save Theirs (Publication Date: November 5, 2019; Algonquin Books, $27.95), Louv redefines the future of human-animal coexistence by exploring our deep bonds with other animals and calling for a transformation in how we view, treat, and inhabit our environment. 

Louv will have a special pre-release book sales and signing event at Maine Audubon on Wednesday, October 23, from 9 to 11 am at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center, 20 Gilsland Farm Road, Falmouth. FMI: 207-781-2330

 Hi there Nature enthusiasts,This Tuesday, November 22, We will explore what comes in from the storm at Kettle Cove Beach in Cape Elizabeth from 1:30 to 3:00.  The fresh seaweed has been piling up at the beach and many types are there to be enjoyed, identified and possibly eaten.  Creatures may also have washed up in the wrack.  Perhaps the shape of the beach will have changed.  Lets check it out!

Directions: Kettle Cove Beach
64 Kettle Cove Rd, Cape Elizabeth, ME, 04107 

 

Hope to see you there.
