|At Valentine National Wildlife Refuge, prairie extends for miles in all directions, providing habitat for grassland birds.|
Continued . . . In early spring, visitors can see prairie chickens and sharp-tailed grouse as they gather on dancing grounds for their elaborate courtship display. A variety of ducks nest on the Refuge in large numbers, and during the fall and spring migrations, many species of waterfowl stop to rest and feed at Valentine NWR. Sometimes as many as 150,000 ducks can be found on the Refuge; peak numbers occur in May and October.
Common mammals on the Refuge include white-tailed deer, mule deer, coyotes, muskrats, and beavers.
