“Birds, birds, birds.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The spring is the best time to visit, as the number of migrating birds is pretty overwhelming then. There are lots less mosquitoes in the fall, however, which is also a good time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We frequently saw deer, antelope, rabbits and coyotes. Birds were also very interesting and a popular passtime for many visitors.

“Birder's Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The Refuge was filled with a wild variety of birds...Bald eagles, White Pelicans, Sandhill cranes, Cinnamon teals, Ruddy ducks, American Avocet and so many more! The air was filled with a amazing bird calls. The Refuge Headquarters is very nice and the staff helpful. We only spent the afternoon in the Refuge but saw so much...including Pronghorn Antelope. I can't imagine how many birds were there during the months of January, February and March! Your vehicle acts as a blind, so just bring your binoculars and telephoto lens...and enjoy the birdlife!
