Saint Bernard State Park
Today I spent from 7:20-8:40 AM walking all the access roads in Saint Bernard State Park.
As is typical of wooded areas of southeast Louisiana, the air was echoing with the songs of Northern Cardinals and Carolina Wrens.
There were a number of other interesting species present that are very scarce or absent in nesting season in the more urban parts of New Orleans, including White-eyed Vireo, Prothonotary Warbler, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Tufted Titmouse, and Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
A Black-bellied Whistling-Duck standing by a tree cavity near camping slot 25 seemed a lot like it might have a nest inside there.
Always nice to see White-tailed Deer.
