Side trip birding in southern Louisiana and swamps east of New Orleans before NADWCon added 5 life species to my list. Huzzah! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: 2 are regional specialties: red-cockaded woodpecker :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: (endangered) and reddish egret, and the other 3 (black-bellied whistling duck, inca dove, Wilson's plover) are rare or vagrant in Maryland where I do most of my birding these days. Managed to digiscope the egret - pics later when I've gotten them out of the camera. So very pleased, I am. And should be. But I'm still 5 short of the 500 club in the USA, sigh.
Cheers -
