    • Twilight Tours

      Yellow Rail

      Join us for our annual Twilight Tours on Thursdays May 25th and June 1st, 2017.  Use your ears, not just your eyes, on these special nighttime tours of Seney National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is closed from dusk to dawn, so this tour is a rare opportunity to experience the refuge in the twilight and early evening hours when many animals are active. We will be searching for secretive marshbirds like the yellow rail, Virginia rail and sora. This is also an excellent chance to hear spring peepers, gray treefrogs, green frogs, and American toads. During this tour, it is unlikely that we will see these animals but chances are very good we will hear some of their calls.
