Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to see migrating songbirds. After leaving their southern wintering grounds, the migratory birds begin arriving in March where the brightly colored males court the females before building a nest. Look for these beautiful, small birds, including eastern bluebirds, prothonotary warblers, painted and indigo buntings and more.
