Big Alabama BayouBig Alabama and Little Alabama Bayous are now cut off by levees, but once were bustling waterways, full of fisherman, trappers, hunters and more. The town of Sherburne, now long gone, once stood on the banks of the Big Alabama Bayou. The waters of the bayou are still a beautiful place to see some prime Louisiana swampland. They also provide habitat for a wide variety of creatures that call the swamp home.Watching WildlifeMillions of migratory songbirds use this and other swamps as a pathway between their northern breeding grounds and their southern wintering grounds, but some winter or even nest here. One way to identify songbirds is by their songs. They spend so much of their time hidden in the brush or up high in the canopy of the forest that they are much easier to hear than see.Suggested rules of behavior for birders: · Bear in mind that in order to find most birds you will be encroaching on their territory, so tread lightly and observe from a distance. · Silence is golden. The keen senses of birds alert them to your presence, often long before you have a chance to see them. Whether alone or in a group, walk as quietly as possible and whisper. · Take extra care when in a potential or active nesting area. It is hard enough for birds to compete with each other for

mates and space; human interference causes additional stress. · Enjoy yourself. Don't be too concerned about finding that rare bird, or spotting more species than last month. Birding is meant to be fun.
