Some of this can be viewed from the fishing area. The area around the fishing access and parking lot hosts many songbirds including yellow-rumped warblers, palm warblers, northern cardinals and downy woodpeckers. There are many bald eagle nests on the refuge and they can often be seen in the area around the fishing pond. Deer are plentiful in the area and are often seen grazing along the road into the parking lot.
