One adult male and female (2007-41) on 20 May 2007, Jefferson: Grand Isle, two blocks east of water tower. Although reported from a location where this species has been somewhat regular, the description was not adequate to eliminate Brown-headed Cowbird. Additionally, there remains no accepted record to date of a female Shiny Cowbird.
One male in breeding plumage (1999-105) on 28 April 1999, Cameron: Hwy. 82 ferry landing on W. side of Calcasieu River. The photos provided did not seem to exclude a first-year male Red-winged Blackbird from consideration.
Two, a male and female (2000-034), on 3 May 2000, Jefferson: Grand Isle. Nearly all Members believed that the description was more indicative of a Bronzed Cowbird.
One adult male (2006-006) on 30 April 2006, Jefferson: Grand Isle, end of SR 548 between Hector Ln. and Cemetery Ln. Most members believed that the details provided were insufficient.
One adult male (2006-048) on 23 December 2006, Grant: Kateland Plantation Rd, ca 0.25 mi. E intersection Hwy. 8 between Boyce and Colfax. Details were considered unconvincing, especially for an inland winter occurrence.
