Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Cameron Parish
/ Sabine National Wildlife Refuge
29.52 N   93.29 W
Southwestern Louisiana can be very rewarding, especially in the winter months and during spring migration. Look for Snow Geese, Peregrine Falcon, Wood Storks and Least Terns.

Grand Isle
29.15 N    90.21 W
This barrier island at the mouth of Barataria Bay may have more birds per capita than anywhere else in the US during a spring migration fallout. You should be able to find shorebirds, ducks, gulls, terns, wading birds and many songbirds in the spring and fall.

Peveto Woods Sanctuaries

29.77 N    93.51 W
This area is famous for spring "fallouts". The Gulf Coast can become littered with birds when a north wind or heavy rains force songbirds to drop into the first bush they see after crossing the Gulf of Mexico.
