The cover of the Seney National Wildlife Refuge Bird Checklist

Seney National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1935 for the protection and production of migratory birds and other wildlife. The refuge’s 95,238 acres include a rich mosaic of marshes, swamps, bogs, and forests, which provide habitat for over 200 species of birds. The refuge is known for its abundance of trumpeter swans, common loons, bald eagles, osprey, and sandhill cranes, which are commonly seen while driving the Marshland Wildlife Drive or walking the Pine Ridge Nature Trail. Other familiar favorites include the American bittern, rails, and numerous warbler species found on the refuge.
