If anyone is interested, photos from my 10 day or so trip to southern Louisiana late this October are at https://www.flickr.com/photos/36088296@N08/sets/72157666457208999
Highlights of visit, as far as rarities, were Thayer's Gull, Great Black-backed Gull (I know, everywhere it's gulls, gulls, gulls), White-tailed Hawk (sorry, no photos), Say's Phoebe.
It is interesting to encounter multiple Cave Swallows, Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Swainson's Hawks, Vermilion Flycatchers, Bronzed Cowbirds, with nary a reaction from local birders. My guess is that a visit 25 years ago with these birds would have been met with awe.
