Each season brings a unique change to the landscape and what wildlife you’re able to photograph at the refuge. During most of the year at the Concord Unit visitors are likely to see Great Blue Herons hunting for fish and muskrats swimming or eating vegetation. At the beginning of spring a diversity of migratory birds and hawks can be seen from the wildlife observation tower. Red-winged Blackbirds are a common sight on the trails at the start of spring and throughout the summer.
