April 21- This year's spring Yellow Rail Walks come to a close today at the refuge. FOAR Secretary David Sarkozi led hundreds of visitors and birders on walks over several weekends in March and April. Every kind of rail that can be found at the refuge was seen at the walks this year.
Earlier this month, Chambers County Judge Jimmy Sylvia and the county commissioners unanimously approved to provide over $15,000 to the Friends to go towards the 50th Anniversary Book
. The additional funding is a substantial boost in the project budget. The Friends, as well as the refuge staff, are very excited to have the county on board with the project. Over 20 photographers have submitted nearly 2000 photos so far.
