The next meeting of the Shreveport Bird Study Group is scheduled for May 10, 2016, @ 6:30 p.m., at the LSUS Museum Annex, located next to the LSUS Museum.  The Annex is accessible from the sidewalk next to the faculty parking lot across from the University Power and Physical Plant.  Signs will be out to direct everyone to the correct location.  See the map below.


Bird Study Group member Jeff Trahan will provide a program entitled


Butterfly Basics

Jeff became interested in  butterflies in 1999.  Since then he has developed a website of the Butterflies of Caddo Parish and compiled a Chart of Seasonal Occurrences of the butterflies of Caddo Parish both of which can be seen at http://www.jtrahan.com/butterflies/index.htm.  He has published several articles about butterflies in the journal of the Southern Lepidopterists’ Society called Southern Lepidopterists’ News.  Many of his butterfly photographs will appear in the upcoming book about Louisiana butterflies which will be published by the LSU Press.
