The most popular type of wildlife at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is birds. Songbirds, shorebirds, raptors, wading birds, waterfowl - each change of season brings a change in what species you will see at the refuge. The rich mixture of forests, tallgrass prairie, riverine bottomland hardwoods, and wetland habitats support thousands of migratory birds, particularly neotropical songbirds. Spring and fall shorebird migrations bring thousands of birds to the lakeshore to rest and refuel for their long journey.
