Tom Woods, Manager of the refuge, examining water outlet, which supplies fresh water for the refuge. Due to the generosity of Ding Darling, former chief of the former Bureau of Biological Survey, this water oulet was installed.
Several species of birds can be found at feeding time on the refuge, including Roseate spoonbills. This is a feeding frenzy for the lucky visitor, where all the birds frolic about trying to get a meal at once.
