There are lots of opportunities to bird watch on the refuge with over 200 species of songbirds expected. The refuge plays an important role in providing bottomland hardwood habitat for forest interior songbirds. Among those species are the imperiled Cerulean warbler, Swainson's warbler, and Prothonotary warbler. These three species are among the Service's five highest priority migratory songbirds and can be found on the refuge. Other songbirds that can be found on the refuge are Acadian Flycatchers, Indigo Buntings, and the Kentucky Warbler.
