Irish Bayou, New Orleans, Louisiana
On a previous visit to the Irish Bayou area, I had the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife along the road including quite a few alligators up close and personal. On this trip though we only saw a couple of alligators drifting quietly in the waterway alongside the road and a few birds circling overhead form time to time. Any birds that we saw were generally too far away for photographing. There was a large engineering reconstruction project underway on the levee at the time of this visit and that may have had an effect on both the water levels and the distribution patterns of the wildlife.
Still on my list of places to visit the next time around. Lots of potential for wildlife sightings but not this particular time around.
