Louisiana May-June

Away from the NYC area I took advantage of a conference trip to New Orleans in late May into June to do a little birding for one of my nemesis birds: Bachman's Sparrow. Via my own research and a lot of helpful advice from TX birders they weren't all that hard to find at Boykin Springs and another site, both near Jasper TX in the pine woods at the eastern edge of the state. As a bonus I saw two Red-cockaded Woodpeckers at the second site, these being my second and third RCWO respectively.

June is going to be the month for trips - I'm off on a pacific northwest trip in two weeks.
