When I was heading into Thibodaux at approximately 1:15 pm today, 4 STKI
flew overhead in front of my car. I pulled off to note where they were
going and subsequently counted 7 more, all heading north-east. After
waiting a short bit to see if more appeared, I moved into traffic. About a
hundred yards further down the road, I observed to my left over Bayou
Lafourche, in the distance, a large flock of birds, heading northeast. I
could not tell whether they were more STKI, but if they were, the numbers
would have been close to 50.

The area would be near, on the LA 1 side of the Bayou, Waverly and Leighton
Plantations, and on the LA 308 side of the Bayou, Lagarde and Abbey
