Peveto Woods is a little sanctuary on the gulf coast. It offers the migratory bird a stand of trees to rest, eat and hide in, where there is otherwise nothing but marsh, grass and sand. To a bird that just flew across the Gulf of Mexico, this tiny stand of trees can be a huge advantage. Ironically, my picture here of a Brown Thrasher is not of a bird who just migrated across the gulf. Brown Thrashers winter in Louisiana. There were migrants to be seen in these woods, but none to be successfully photographed. I think I am coming here tomorrow for my first field trip, so perhaps I will get a picture of one of those migrants.
