Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge’s diverse habitats attract more than 270 species of migratory birds. Its multiple trails and seasonal auto tour route, the Wildlife Drive, offer visitors an opportunity to see many of these birds and a variety of other wildlife. The Joseph M. Soehnel Wetland Overlook at the Ferguson Bayou Trail parking lot is the first of three wildlife viewing platforms along the Wildlife Drive.
