At Avery Island in Louisiana where Tabasco is made, an outstanding attraction is the rookery.
A huge platform standing above the water was covered with nesting egrets when I was there in March. I was able to see some blue eggs, some baby hatchlings, some fledglings and countless adult egrets, many on nests, some in flight and some actually feeding their young. It was quite a sight and one I won't forget. I recommend a trip to Avery Island for the beautiful grounds, the wonderful birds and even a tour of the Tabasco plant and country store. Bring binoculars and a camera and wear comfortable shoes. Take your time to look and listen and watch.
