We had a great time visiting J.N. (Ding) Darling National Wildlife Refuge. We got there about 10:30 am on February 11; saw many birds, white pelicans, three types of egrets, ibis, shoe crabs, etc. Some posts on this website complained not seeing any wildlife. I think season and time of the day are important factors of seeing wildlife. Morning and early evening are the best time. Winter is a great time to see migrating birds. It is a great place to visit. Don't miss it!
