Ornithologist Mike Musumeche recorded about 260 species of birds on Jefferson Island over the years and 59 in January 2017. Click here to see his latest log on Ebird.
"We have some species that stay all year," he says. " If you check the January observation notes from Mike Musumeche you will see that many are here despite the cold. The big numbers are in late March through May while the nesting and rearing occurs. We have birders here every day even now."
So whether, you are an amateur or professional birder, we invite you grab a pair of binoculars and visit Rip's Rookery on Jefferson Island, as well as our other birding areas in Iberia Parish! Check out our birding page for a list of birding spots and a bird checklist.
