  • Hiking on Birdsong trail is always relaxing, and there are still birds in late December. The loop drive is interesting, don't forget binoculars.  more »

  • I lived on the edge of the wildlife refuge for almost 10 years and spent time there as often as possible. The Place is magical all year round but is even more so during the fall and spring migrations ...  more »
  • For anyone who is a nature buff, this is a very nice place to go. There are a lot of aquatic birds and also a lot of other wildlife to see. The drive through the park takes about an hour or more depending on how many stops you make. There are a lot of places to pull over and take pictures. One word of warning, if you take this trip through the park, bring insect repellent and make sure to keep your car windows closed...the mosquitos and greenheads are plentiful!
  • This place is Glorious! It's like Mother Nature smiled on every piece of land! If you are disabled come to Forsythe there is the drivable loop road and you can stop and view the birds anytime you want. I highly recommend this wonderful place!
  • A very beautiful wildlife refuge. More birds than I can ever imagine. I recommend visiting! The even have trails that you can drive in your car so you don't have to walk!
  • Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite places to go to when I want to take pictures of wildlife. Depending on the time of year not only do you see a good variety of birds you can also see a lot of butterflies and turtles especially the diamondback terrapin. Have your cameras on the front seat next to you and keep your eyes open almost anything can fly by you and be hiding in the bushes. Most of the people you meet there are very friendly and willing to share observations, if you see a several cars stopped on one section of the causeway you can usually stop and ask what it is that they are looking at and most people will tell as soon as your walk up.
  • Cool place to drive around or walk and see all the marsh life. And a great place for birdwatching.
