Visited the refuge last week, it was a very flat and very peaceful atmosphere through the wetlands, forests, and tidelands. I went with several friends, and we saw many different kinds of small birds, and a few larger birds at a distance. Blue herons, eagles, and many kinds of duck were widespread, and we also saw a coyote! I can imagine how wonderful this place would be in the spring and summer – it was quite cold and overcast when I went.
