millipede Posted June 1, 2022 Share Posted June 1, 2022 Looking at the map, and even eBird hotspot map, there's nothing there... I have a friend that is planning a trip down there in a couple weeks. He's blind... they have 4 kids and two of them are a bit of a challenge at times. His wife is often worn out so this trip worries him a little, I think. I started joking with him, at first, that if it wasn't for my wife getting visitation of a couple of my kids, I'd pack the kids and head down with them and we could give them a hand. He kind of liked that idea. He'll have to talk to his wife first... After he told me it was only for a few days I got to thinking... In all honesty, it's the birds turning the gears in my skull... ha. I could ask my ex to switch the day to later in the week....... that shouldn't be an issue. Provided my van is working well, I think the trip is doable... That ramble aside... Anyone familiar with the area? It's between Shreveport and Monroe... And there's pretty much nothing there. I'm looking for both species suggestions as well as hotspot(or not hotspot) locations. Nothing toooooo far from Arcadia. I'll have to talk to my friend about their other options for lodging. There's a hotel there but he says he doesn't think there's a pool and they MIGHT want to have something like that so they might stay a little further away from Arcadia. Which reminds me... I'll also be looking at lodging suggestions. There are some campgrounds on lakes but I'm not sure they'll want to actually camp. (just talked to him, they might look at a hotel in Ruston anyway... anyone know the area and have suggestions on lodging, hotspots, or species? Depending on where they/we stay, I wouldn't want to bird toooo far from there. I'd be going to be a help to their family and wouldn't want to drive hours away to bird. But I'd have to do SOME birding... ? I'm going to TRY and look at the species in that area and see what I might need to look for that might not be too difficult. I'm thinking of anghingas already...
