This Refuge also hosts large numbers of migrating snow, white-fronted, and Canada geese. In fact, this Refuge was one of the first sites selected in North Dakota for restoring giant Canada geese.

Species found during the summer months include the ferruginous hawk, American bittern, great blue heron, black-crowned night heron, American white pelican, giant Canada goose, mallard, northern pintail, and blue-winged teal. Many mammals, including white-tailed deer, coyote, mink, muskrat, raccoon, and skunk reside on the Refuge year-round.
