Prairies & Lakes•
More than 1 million Attwater's prairie chickens lived in the coastal prairie more than a century ago, but as their habitat was lost to development, the population dropped as low as an estimated 60 birds in the wild in 1998. The birds are most active in the spring, and though their low numbers limit the chance of seeing them, they are making a comeback. The refuge also hosts the annual Attwater's Prairie Chicken Festival in April. Special tours may be arranged by contacting Eagle Lake Chamber of Commerce. Open daily, sunrise to sunset. On F.M. 3013, 6.5 miles northeast of Eagle Lake. 979/234-2780. www.fws.gov/southwest/refuges/texas/attwater/index.html
