Twelve species of ducks have been found nesting on the Refuge. Giant Canada geese and a variety of shorebirds are also common on Kellys Slough NWR and surrounding lands. A 3-year study initiated in 2000 documented an average annual population of almost 36,000 shorebirds representing 22 species. The Refuge staff manage eight wetland management pools, comprising 936 acres on the Refuge and adjacent WPAs. The remaining uplands are predominately grasslands.
