A small flock of wood ducks gathered in a wetland with vegetation around the water and in the water.

The refuge provides year round wildlife observation opportunities. The visitor center is a good place to start to check with a refuge ranger of volunteer for recent sightings. The viewing windows in the visitor center are also a great place to observe waterfowl and eagles during certain times of the year. The auto tour, nature trails and Bob Starr Wildlife Overlook are also good places to explore for wildlife. Binoculars are available for loan at the visitor center.
