Vermilion Parish Birding


Vermilion Parish is a part of America's WETLAND Birding Trail. The America's WETLAND Birding Trail helps visitors explore some of Louisiana's most productive natural habitats along the coast and expose them to some of the best birding in the country.

In addition to exceptional birds and other wildlife, America's WETLAND Birding Trail also exposes visitors to some of the state's unique history and culture.

On the Vermilion Birding Loop, which traces the lower reaches of the Bayou Vermilion through the heart of Cajun Country, you can find a wide assortment of birds like roseate spoonbills, pipers, snowy egrets, herons and pelicans. The Islands, know as Les Iles des Acadiens, offers protection to migratory birds and a diverse insect feast in this triple ecotone system.
