There is a private pocket of birding heaven on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Just east of the Tchefuncte River between Madisonville and Ponchatoula, lies a 3,000-acre private wildlife preserve called Pine Island. Along with an abundance of native flora,PineIslandis home to thousands of roosting birds and is a naturalist’s dream come true.
