This was a full-day, somewhat rigorous tour through several areas home to endemic and endangered species, with the focus on birds, but we stopped to study everything we ran across whether native or invasive. Taj, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the wildlife of the

Took the tour on March 14th, 2019 - absolutely sublime day. The only issue was the Sprinter Van’s rear speakers seemed to be faulty, so we could not hear the tour guide while driving up to the refuge.
