We headed for the refuge early on a February morning and were seeing Sandhill cranes rising in flight almost immediately. So graceful and beautiful and noisy! We took the car tour and used an audio guide as we drove. Learned so much about ducks which have always been pretty much a mystery to me. The visitor center is excellent with some really great exhibits and information. A nice gift shop is part of the center.
