Cedar Point Boat Launch is on the Bay of St Louis at the north end of North Beach Boulevard. This site has seawall on one side and marsh on the other. It is worth a visit in winter particularly when bad weather over the Mississippi Sound forces some birds to seek more sheltered waters. Scan the waters for loons, grebes, sea ducks and foraging flocks of gulls. A few Ospreys and American Bald Eagles are usually present, and on a few occasions a Peregrine Falcon has wintered. Flocks of White Pelicans are also fairly frequent. The marsh usually has a few wintering Nelson’s Sparrows. Best time to look for them is during very low tides when they forage on the exposed mud at the base of the grass beds.
