Waterfowl Counts

Goldeneye

Bird counts are conducted weekly during the fall migration seasons.  Check back weekly for the latest updates.



Waterfowl counts are only done in the fall on the refuge.  Due to flooding and flood damage, we are not able to conduct waterfowl surveys during the 2019/2020 migration season.  As a result of the flooding, we can not access a lot of the units to get an accurate waterfowl count, so it would not provide us with the representative data for the refuge that can be compared to previous years. If interested in general numbers, please call our visitor center at 712-388-4800
