For optimal bird watching and photographic opportunities, plan your visit during the fall migration, or during early and evening hours. One secret to spotting more wildlife is to stand still and look quietly around. Movement and noise scares most animals and birds away. Please help us minimize disturbance to plants and wildlife by moving lightly and quietly through the area. Binoculars and field guides can help you identify any animals you see.
