birders can ride on the rice-cutting combine and watch as
the yellow rails are flushed by the rice harvesting -- no rails are
ever flushed intentionally, so you can ONLY ride the combine when the
rice is actually being harvested
Here's a round-up of photographs from Yellow Rail and
Rice Festival 2011, which you can read about by clicking
here for . Oh, and don't forget to check
all-important trip list. Keep in mind, those folks who did
the side trips to Cameron got a MUCH, much longer list, but you
can see we did all right for ourselves, just taking it nice
and easy on our way to 9 new Louisiana state birds and 3
the rails are way too fast
for my little camera to photograph, but a wildlife official picked up
this feisty water snake exposed by one of the cutting operations and allowed
me to snap a photo -- others herps seen include leopard frog and
after the storm that passed through
on friday morning, the fields glowed with a mysterious golden light
on the rice, in contrast to the gloomy skies...most dramatic!
the rice plant was a modern operation complete
with its own power plant, with all electricity being generated by
burning rice hulls -- 20% of the power is used to operate the plant and
the remaining leftover power is sold back to the power company
this handsome field held many and many a killdeer, some busy northern harriers...
and our american golden-plovers
back - next
