After running an errand on Gunter Loop Thursday and seeing how birdy it was, I returned this morning to officially record the birds. The growing secondary hardwood forest held a lot of Indigo Buntings, Yellow-Breasted Chats, and Dickcissels. The Lark Sparrows were at the same area where I'd seen them yesterday by the corn fields, but I missed the Horned Lark today. I heard a few warblers in trees near the Bayou Macon. Since this is all private land, one has to stay by the road. As it was, I received ugly scowls from a couple of passing farmers hauling equipment and the parish road crew patching the road. Despite that, I will try to remember to check here next year earlier in migration. At least the woman on her riding mower gave me a very friendly wave.
