North Louisiana Ornithological Society visits Caney Lake

Members of the North Louisiana Ornithological Society (LOS) visited Caney Lake on January 22nd to view the Common Loon bird species. Caney Lake is one of the few Louisiana waterways that the Common Loon stops at on its migration path. During the tour LOS members also commented on how wonderful it was being able to see pelicans, eagles, and other bird species as well.

Several members stayed at Jimmie Davis State Park for this outing.

The Louisiana Ornithological Society (LOS) was organized in 1947 to gather and disseminate accurate information concerning the bird life of Louisiana; to promote interest in and appreciation of the value of birds, both aesthetic and economic, which will ensure wiser conservation of our bird life; to promote opportunity for acquaintance and fellowship among those interested in nature; and to issue, at such times as possible or practicable, publications as a means of furthering these ends.

While doing some work around the spillway dam, Jackson Parish Watershed Commission Vice President Gary Joynor had the opportunity to greet and welcome the members of the LOS to Caney Lake.

“This is another example that Caney Lake and Jackson Parish have something for everyone,” said Joynor. “We look forward to the next time the LOS returns for more birding adventures!”
