Several photographs taken by local photographers are displayed at the contact station at Trustom Pond NWR, and the visitor centers at Kettle Pond and Sachuest Point. Finally, the Friends group holds an annual photography contest in the fall.
Formal surveys of American black duck (Anas rubripes)and saltmarsh sharptailed sparrow (Ammodramus caudacutus) are underway. Other waterfowl that commonly winter in the Narrow River watershed are mallards, canvasbacks, bufflehead, mergansers, Canada geese, and the non-native mute swan. Another common salt marsh species found on the refuge, besides sharptailed sparrows, are red-winged blackbirds. Snowy egrets are often found foraging in tidal channels and salt marsh pools. There is at least one osprey nest in the watershed, and as many as three pairs forage there. The uplands contain a diversity of nesting and migratory songbirds, including common yellowthroat, eastern pewee, gray catbird, common grackle, American redstart, blue-winged warbler, and white-eyed vireo.
