This 5,037-acre refuge located about five miles south of Ronan on U.S. 93 offers relatively easy birding year-round. Parts of the refuge are closed during nesting season, and during hunting season access is limited to the secondary county roads and paved highways that surround the refuge. The network of roads crosses a variety of habitats, most offering excellent birdwatching opportunities. From late fall through early spring, look for Northern Shrike perched atop the tallest shrubs as they hunt for mice, insects, and small birds. Ring-necked Pheasant, year-round residents, favor fields, shelterbelts, and dense reed beds.
