“So many birds”

I never new what a "rookery" was. We were taking the Cajun Country Swamp Tour and the guide took us by the rookery pointing out all the different species of birds. A bird watcher must and take the Cajun Country Swamp Tour because they take their time going by it trying not to disturb the wildlife.

We were early for a swamp tour so drove down the road and came upon the rookary. Could not believe the number of birds. So impressed I took my daughter by to watch the birds.

One of the best places to see spoonbills in March. Also egrets, great blue herons, and woodpeckers. Great for viewing crocks on a warm day in March as well. Most importantly swamps are alive and well. Old cedar trees showing their 'knees' from the lake make lasting impression.
