Labird: I was delighted to discover a Masked Duck, apparently female, this morning in one of my managed wetlands in Caddo Parish. Photos are on the Pinola Conservancy Blog:
If accepted this will be only the 5th state record for this species which does occasionally show up outside of its range. The most recent LRBC listed record is 1992 and regionally, was at Hackberry Flats in Oklahoma last year.
Anyone who would like to try to see it this week or weekend may email me directly.
