Birding

Enjoy one of the fastest growing outdoor activities – birdwatching. With an abundance of opportunities to spot over 300 known species of birds throughout the Cajun Coast by car or by boat, birdwatchers will have a spectacular time.

Travel down Stephensville Road off Hwy. 70, visit the Brownell Memorial and Carillon Tower (a designated bird sanctuary), travel along Cotten Road in Patterson or take a swamp tour into the Atchafalaya Basin for a close-up view of the natural environment. Eagles can be sighted between October through the end of April.

The Atchafalaya Basin, one of the great ecological wonders of the United States, abounds in all types of wildlife. It extends north from Morgan City past Lafayette in a maze of bayous, lakes, ponds and cypress swamps. In addition to the wide variety of birds, more than 65 species of reptiles and 46 species of mammals inhabit the Cajun Coast.
