Long recognized as a major waterfowl concentration point during spring and fall migrations, Lake Alice NWR also supports significant numbers of nesting waterfowl. Hundreds of thousands of snow geese, Canada geese, and a variety of duck species use the lake and surrounding lands each year.

The Refuge also supports large numbers of wading and marsh birds. Many colonial nesting water birds, including terns, grebes, gulls, egrets, and herons, breed at Lake Alice NWR. Lake Alice NWR also hosts the second largest Franklin's gull colony in the world.
