Grand Isle Migratory Bird Festival

Enjoy migration on Louisiana's only inhabited barrier island. See songbirds in oak-hackberry woods, shorebirds and waders on beaches and marshes. Birdwatching tours, local seafood, displays & crafts. Free videos and birding trail maps. Fun for families, new and experienced birders.
This annual event was created in 1998 to support the purchase and management of the Grand Isle Sanctuary to protect some of the last remaining, undeveloped chenier habitats (live oak ridges). Only 10% of these forest habitats that once existed on much of Grand Isle still exist today.
