This site guide describes sixteen of the best publicly accessible birding locations in Caddo, Bossier, and Red River Parishes.
The guide provides directions to the selected sites and brief summaries of birds that can be seen in the favorite birding locations known to the Bird Study Group in northwestern Louisiana. The 16 sites chosen were based on public accessibility, quality of birding, and numbers of bird records in the LSUS Museum of Life Sciences bird database.
The guide was written by the following members of the Bird Study Group of the Shreveport Society for Nature Study, Inc.: Paul Dickson, Laurence M. Hardy, Hubert Hervey, James L. Ingold, A. Bradley McPherson, Nancy M. Menasco, Larry R. Raymond (chairman), Jeff F. Trahan, and Bill Wood.
It is our hope that this guide will provide the information needed to find the best birding spots in northwestern Louisiana. Finding, identifying, and enjoying the birds at these sites is all up to you. A seasonal occurrence chart is available on the BSG website. Good luck and good birding!
Other good areas for which the Bird Study Group has records are known. At some time in the future, after more data is collected, several of these sites might be added as Hotspots.
