Birds on the Refuge   

Each Tuesday a team of expert birders, led by Master Naturalist Jack Chiles, takes a refuge bird census by recording the number of birds they encounter throughout the refuge.  They report their findings to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for use in research, see the link below for recent results.
