The 400 Bird Quest - Louisana

Count update:  233 /400

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.
