I went to Catahoula NWR Headquarters Unit and Willow Lake Unit this morning (La Salle Parish). HQ Unit: *Northern Pintail* have arrived. A few *Blue-winged Teal* and *Northern Shoveler*. Shorebirds included 36 *Least Sandpipers, 3 Gr Yellowlegs, 2 Lesser Yellowlegs, and of course a few Killdeer. *Water level in Duck Lake not down with rest of Catahoula Lake system, so there was almost no good shorebird habitat on HQ Unit. Passerine migrants included *Gray Catbird* (one at each unit), *Black-and-white Warbler *(HQ Unit) and a female *Rose-breasted Grosbeak* (HQ Unit) that required "Show Rarities" to put it in eBird report -- I guess it's still a little early. She appeared to be feeding on Muscadines. *Indigo Buntings* were in groups along roadsides.
