We flew 19 lines today, trying to get a 3-day survey done in 2 days, and dodging thunderstorms most of mid-day. Not many teal in the marsh, which is normal, but our transects cut a couple big groups in rice fields north of Lacassine NWR and west of Gueydan. I suspect from those observations alone, the estimate will surpass those of the past 2 years, but it wasn't outstanding.
Don't know what we will get accomplished tomorrow in SE LA, but I'm always hoping to see a few more birds.
