LABIRD: I ran up to Morganza Spillway this afternoon to see what the Forebay was like — it is full. So, depending on how long the water stays high, it has the potential to be fantastic for waterbirds this fall when drawn down. Currently, it is mostly birdless, except for big swarms of Neotropic Cormorants. I did see a young Brown Pelican (unusual inland) as well as a Common Loon and ad. Bald Eagle.
