About the Book
“The bird life in Lafreniere Park is unsuspectingly spectacular. Usually when reading a sign that states “Bird Sanctuary” you expect to see a few birds. However, the pure multitude of birds in this park is mind-boggling; the sheer number of species staggering. And, they live, and thrive, in perfect harmony with their human neighbors. My desire is that my photographs give you a sense of what it is really like to spend time amongst the birds of Lafreniere Park.” according to Eugene Brill, nature photographer and outdoor enthusiast. This Coffee Table book features a brief history of New Orleans; and the history, birds and wildlife of Lafreniere Park in the residential suburb of Metairie, on the outskirts of New Orleans, Louisiana. Photography and text by Eugene Brill.
