Go on a songbird walk. Catch sight of bald and golden eagles. Be sure to bring your binoculars, and keep looking up in Tennessee!

Take in our wide variety of colorful and rare birds. Our great diversity of natural habitat attracts many different species of songbirds, waterbirds and raptors.

Our birds include year-round residents, those that summer here and others that merely pass through on migrations to breeding grounds. Be it migrating mallads or the elusive wood duck, Chickasaw National Wildlife Refuge is a popular destination for bird watchers.
