Given that the Refuge is part of the largest mangrove ecosystem in the United States, it is the perfect location for birds to feed, nest, and roost. The Refuge is home to over 245 species of birds. Would you like to know which bird species have been seen recently throughout the Refuge? We are now using eBird to track the weekly bird observations by Refuge volunteers and visiting birders who enter their observation data into eBird. The "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society also posts weekly wildlife sightings.
