The Great Louisiana BirdFest is an annual event of the Northlake Nature Center. It is held each year in the spring when many species are migrating north through Louisiana from Mexico and South America. Our location in southern Louisiana makes this an excellent time of year for birding. The weather is typically warm but not yet hot and the trees are usually leafing out, but still thin enough for improved visibility. 
BirdFest trips will visit varied habitat including swamps, wetlands, pine savanna, and hardwoods of southeast Louisiana. Among the many excellent birding locations scheduled for this year's BirdFest is Pine Island, a rookery located in a private preserve.

BirdFest includes birding trips, some Southern food and hospitality, and a few workshops. Check the details below and join us for good birding and a wonderful time.

Before and after our scheduled trips, take a leisurely walk through the Northlake Nature Center property via a clearly marked path from BirdFest headquarters. There are five miles of trails through our 400 acres, marked for self-guided tours. Habitats at the Nature Center site include a grove of giant southern magnolias, Cypress/gum swamp, and a beaver pond on Bayou Castine. You may see wood ducks, migrant warblers, and if you're lucky, our flock of over twenty wild turkeys! So, plan to take this pleasant walk.
