South Louisiana is known for its low wet elevation. I had never been there before. But I discovered it to be even truer than I had imagined. They got 2-3 days of rain just before I arrived and many of the road ditches had swollen almost up to the payment. In wandering through LA I was able to find 19 new species for the year. Most are wintering species that commonly summer back home. But a few are rarely found in Anoka County, Minnesota: Anhinga, White-faced Ibis, and Carolina Chickadee In all I had 101 species in Louisiana making it the 6th state in which I have 100 or more birds on my life list after Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Arizona, and California.
