Continued . . . The endangered whooping crane is often seen migrating in small groups or with sandhill cranes. Piping plovers, a threatened species, nest in the area each summer. Giant Canada geese, in addition to ducks such as mallard, gadwall, blue-winged teal, northern pintail, and lesser scaup, are common nesters on the Refuge. Other bird species you may see include the northern harrier, marbled godwit, upland sandpiper, western meadowlark, bobolink, and more than 200 other species.
Audubon NWR also provides habitat for wildlife that make the prairies their year-round home, including white-tailed deer, coyote, red fox, sharp-tailed grouse, ring-necked pheasant, and gray partridge.
