Over 290 different species of birds have been seen on the refuge and Muscatatuck is a wonderful place to find birds year-round.  The best times to visit depend on what you are interested in.  Early May is the peak of the songbird migration.  The largest variety of waterfowl usually appear in March and November, and late December.  January and early February bring large numbers of sandhill cranes to the refuge vicinity.
