Birding in Louisiana and Mississippi Part: The Last

I'm just posting a selection of some of the photographs that I took during our time spent birding whilst in southern Louisiana and Mississippi. During our time there we saw about 120 species and I managed to get some decent photographs of about half of them, some really crap photographs of a few of them and no photographs at all of the remainder. Here, in alphabetical order for some reason, is a selection of pictures from the first group.
