Cornucopia of spring birds
Waterbirds like stilt, avocet, ibis, egrets and herons are here! Plus, goslings & ducklings will be hatching soon.
Prairie Falcon Release
On 1/13 we found a small male Prairie Falcon at the Refuge. The great folks at WRCNU fixed him up and on 2/5 he was released into the wild.
View the Release
Drive the Loop!
Don't forget, our Auto Tour Route is open EVERY DAY of the year, from sunrise to sunset...and the best way to view the birds and wildlife.
Some of our early season breeding birds are setting up territories, while other birds like this Marbled Godwit are just stopping through on their way north to their breeding grounds. Birding on the Refuge
