Field trip

Today seemed like a good day to trade the sounds of the city for the sounds of the swamp.  So I drove across the river and headed down to Barataria Preserve, which is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering around.




I found this up in a tree.  I have no idea what it is.  I'll bet GG would know.  She knows all about bird stuff.  She would probably pull out one of those humongous bird books she has stashed all over the house and find it in about a minute.


Barataria Preserve is part of Jean Lafitte National Park, which consists of six different park sites spread out around south Louisiana.  Worth a visit if you're in the area.   Jean Lafitte National Park
