I birded Vermilion Parish Saturday and Sunday and found the birding noteworthy. It'll be interesting to see how this report compares to reports from Cameron and Grand Isle.
Long story short, I spent a lot of time birding small woodlots in ag land and int the marsh. In the marsh, some of those woodlots amounted to one or two small hackberries. Regardless of where I stopped, migrants were varied and numerous. Every stop had a good variety of warblers.
Notable in terms of what made eBird lists were 73 individuals of 16 warbler species including double digit Magnolia and Tennessee, multiple Bay-breasted, only 2 redstarts, and zero Yellowrumps. Pewees were all over; at the end of the highway I kicked up a bunting flock that settled in rattlebox plants; one rattlebox plant about 5 feet tall held 6 or so buntings, 1 Tennessee, and 2 pewees. White-eyed Vireos were also abundant.
Two Common Ground Doves feeding in the road miles apart on Freshwater City Road (a highway through the marsh) seemed like they might have found themselves in a place they'll want to leave soon. I was hoping some stranger ground feeders might find themselves in the same place, but if so, I missed them.
Birds a bit late or soon to be were Swainson's Thrush, multiple Yellow-throated Vireos, Acadian Flycatcher...
Most notable bird of the weekend was a Calling Couch's Kingbird on Cemetery Road south of Wright. The kingbird was pretty cooperative; location is on this checklist if anyone is interested to see if it's still there: https://ebird.org/checklist/S60937250
