The refuge has a maritime grassland community, one of few on Long Island. Grassland dependent birds such as blue-winged and prairie warblers use the maritime grassland, which is dominated by little bluestem and switchgrass. Wading birds and osprey are common on the refuge during the spring and summer, while waterfowl such as American black duck, are abundant in winter.
