The annual Butterfly Survey on the Refuge will be conducted in early July
It is unknown if the trumpeter swans successfully nested this year. Conditions for viewing the nest have not been good.
Snake River Audubon Society has been conducting bird surveys of the grass and agrictultural fields on the refuge in order to record the avian diversity in these habitats.
Water on the refuge appears stable for othe short term.
Waterfowl and water birds (e.g. Willits, Grebes, etc.) and their broods are abundant and, along with deer, elk, and antelope fawns, make for good viewing.
