The migration routes, stopover points, and breeding habitat of neotropical songbirds in Louisiana will benefit from the planting of 150,000 native bottomland hardwoods on the Bayou Cocodrie National Wildlife Refuge. The plantings also will provide breeding habitat and wintering grounds for waterfowl and habitat for the threatened Louisiana black bear.
