Of the 175 record-number of captive-bred Attwater's prairie chickens (APC) released in 2007 at three release sites, more than 40% of them are still alive.  About 48% are still alive at the Attwater Prairie Chicken NWR; 16% at the Texas City Prairiie Preserve; and, 44% on  private ranch land in Goliad County.  This release has been a little better than average when compared to other years.  Refuge personnel are still radio tracking 5 birds from previous releases including 3 from 2006, 1 from 2005, and 1 from 2004.
