Birding Festivals & Events

Loading Events

YRARF 2023 is a small festival focused on participants having a good time. Participants can come and go at their leisure from the rice harvest sites. Leaders/facilitators are positioned at field sites and help participants spot rails (notably Yellow Rails!) and other species as well as provide information or answer questions. Many of the agencies and organizations that study, manage, and protect Louisiana’s birds and habitats assist at the festival. Based in Jennings, participants are positioned in the heart of Cajun Country in Louisiana’s SW prairie region, an area known for great birding, local cuisine, and a rich history and culture. Visit
