Yellow Rails and Rice Festival in Bird Watcher's Digest

An excerpt from the article reads: “In late October, the fourth annual Yellow Rails and Rice Festival will take place in Louisiana’s southwestern prairie region. This modest event is unique insofar as it brings birders and farmers together to appreciate the value to birds of the state’s “working wetlands,”
the rice country of the area. Surely, participants will view elusive wintering yellow rails in rice fields, but more importantly, they will combine our pastime with the working lives of people engaged with what is certainly the most bird-friendly agricultural crop in North American: rice.

The festival is scheduled for October 24-28, 2012 in Jennings.
