Birdwatching is one of the most popular wildlife viewing activities on the refuge. Annual migrations along the Atlantic Flyway funnel hundreds of thousands of waterfowl, songbirds, and raptors through coastal Georgia. In the summer, colonies of egrets, herons, and wood storks nest in the swamps, while in the winter, large concentrations of ducks gather in the marshland and freshwater pools. Colorful painted buntings call the refuge home during their summer breeding season.
