The area along Little River supports several bald eagles each winter where they search for food such as fish and waterfowl. The numerous oxbow lakes at the refuge are home to alligators, but very few are seen due to their reclusive behavior.

Deer and turkey occur on the refuge in moderate numbers, and squirrels and rabbits are abundant while beaver and raccoon are found near water.

Several heron rookeries containing a variety of species of herons and egrets occur on the refuge. In addition there are numerous other nesting species of migratory birds. Some of the more interesting and visible birds include red-shouldered hawk, red-tailed hawk, Mississippi kite, pileated woodpecker, and turkey vulture.
