You pay a fee and drive your vehicle throughout the 4 mile stretch of roadway through the Refuge. It is always a good sign when you drive along and you see multiple cars pulled off the roadway and several photogs lining the roadside. I had good luck with the several visits we made to this location this time around. I was able to photograph Tricolored Herons, Anhingas, White and Brown Pelicans, Snowy Egrets, Great White Egrets. Also seeing an occasional Spoonbill which seemed to be less numerous then in our past visit in the summer last year.
