National Wildlife Refuge - Texas

Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge (HNWR) is located in northwestern Grayson County, Texas, on the Big Mineral Arm of Lake Texoma, on the Red River between Oklahoma and Texas. The refuge, a haven for migratory birds and other wildlife, is made up of water, marsh, and upland habitat. Visitors can hike, observe wildlife, hunt, and fish throughout the year. The main focus at HNWR is providing a winter home for thousands of waterfowl. The Canada goose is the predominant species; the population of this species can exceed 7,500 during fall, winter, and spring. Other species include the greater white-fronted goose and snow goose, with a few of the smaller Ross's goose.

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Birds of Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge Snow geese descend like a prairie blizzard upon the 11,320 acre Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge located on Lake Texoma, 10 miles northwest of Sherman, Texas. Just 75 miles north of Dallas where the Red River etches the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas, migratory birds by the thousands refuel for long journeys. The main road through the refuge offers outstanding views of the restless flocks. The refuge was created to provide food and nesting habitat for all types of migratory birds. Snow, Ross’s, and Canada geese spend the entire winter loafing here on the Big Mineral Arm of Lake Texoma. Mississippi kites and scissor-tailed flycatchers hunt the summer skies for insects. Great blue herons call the refuge home in every season. Hagerman has recorded 330 species of birds that have been seen on the refuge since its establishment in 1946. The information reflected in this list was compiled by refuge staff, volunteers, and visiting ornithologists. This listing is in accordance with the seventh edition of the American Ornithologists’ Union Checklist of North American Birds, (1998) and its supplements through July 2010. Bird List Introduction and Key If you should find an unlisted or rare species during your visit, please contact the Refuge staff and provide a description. The refuge birds do not recognize traditional calendar seasons, therefore, season designations for species are intended as general guidelines. Symbols used in this list are defined as follows: Sp S F W - Spring Summer Fall Winter March - May June - July August - November December - February Abundance A - Abundant A common species that is very numerous. C - Common Likely to be seen in suitable habitats. U - Uncommon Present, not certain to be seen. O - Occasional Seen few times during the season R - Rare Seen at intervals of 2 to 5 years. X - Accidental Has been seen only once or twice. * - Nests locally or has previously nested locally (I) Introduced An established species that is not native to North America.
