The Bird Study Group is a northwestern Louisiana organization of birders based in Shreveport.  The Bird Study Group offers field trips, bird discussions, a bird sighting database, and other programs for people with an interest in birds.  Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month except July and August.


The next meeting of the Shreveport Bird Study Group is scheduled for Tuesday, October 13, 2015, @ 6:30 p.m., at the LSUS Red River Education and Research Park Watershed Research Station across the levee from LSUS.  Longtime Shreveport Bird Study Group founding member

Paul Dickson 
will provide a program entitled 
“Lessons from a Northwest Louisiana Watefowl Banding Project

Paul is a local businessman and talented naturalist by avocation.  He has spent much of his life studying waterfowl and is one of the most knowledgeable people in our area on identification and natural history of ducks and geese.  He will discuss many of the things he has learned over the past years, including how and why he traps ducks, what he has learned so far (including a study of survival data by the University of Minnesota), philopatry (the tendency to return to the same area) in ducks, as well as share anecdotes of his experiences with waterfowl.

The meeting is free and open to the public. See the map below for the location of the meeting at the Anderson Watershead Research Station.  For more information, including directions, call Larry Raymond at 318-347-3134 or Mac Hardy at 318-797-5338. Or contact either of them by email:
