Birding in Louisiana

Birding

The rich ecosystems created by Louisiana's varied and unusual terrain form a nurturing habitat for vast numbers of birds, including both those that are native to the region and many that migrate to or through the area each year. Many state parks and national wildlife refuges around the state are havens for bird-watching and bird photography. The coastal marshlands offer access to some of the most unusual species of songbirds, raptors and water fowl. Take advantage of the many birding trails around the state to see Louisiana's natural beauty and some of its most beautiful inhabitants.
