Had 2 WHIPs tonight at my usual location just north of Homer in Claiborne Parish. Got vocal recordings of 1 bird. Both birds only singing briefly. It's the earliest I've ever had them.
If you're interested in looking for them and maybe adding them to parish lists, start going out from now through April. If you're in North Louisiana and have questions about habitat, please email off list. But up here they are not confined to bottomland hardwood like they are in South Louisiana.
