Brief Directions

From Lafayette, LA take I-49 South/US-90 East towards New Iberia, LA. Exit right off of US 90 at Jefferson Island Road (Highway 675). Go approximately 5 miles and turn right at the stop sign towards Rip Van Winkle Gardens.

Notes

Hundreds of nesting water birds come back to the rookery each spring. And so do the lucky photographers who find this little-known spot in the Sportsman's Paradise.

Description

These two Tri-colored Heron chicks were within 100 feet of the levee which surrounds the nesting area at Rip's Rookery on Jefferson Island.
