Wildlife observation and birding is a popular activity at Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Viewing opportunities include wintering flocks of ducks and wading birds in the bayou, songbirds in the trees and shrubs, and harriers and hawks hunting over the savanna. The refuge also has two established trails that offer many overlooks that are perfect for catching a glimpse of the local wildlife.
