Most Sought Species at This Site:

Tricolored Heron, Clapper Rail, American Oystercatcher, Least Tern, Gull-billed Tern, Sandwich Tern, Black Skimmer

Although this site boasts no regularly occurring rarities, it is one of those places that should be checked regularly, especially when rough weather off shore may drive some rarity to seek sheltered waters. Scan from the end of the pier (the large covered pavilion is a plus in blustery weather) and check the rock jetty for American Oystercatcher, Ruddy Turnstone and the always-to-be-hoped-for Purple Sandpiper. Eared Grebe has been seen here on occasion, as have both Black and Surf Scoters in the bayou and open-waters out from the pier. Black-crowned Night-Heron can sometimes be found in the nearby trees. The adjacent sand beach to the west may also contain a few shorebirds.
