More than 420 species of resident and migratory birds have been recorded on the Ranch, including painted buntings, green jays, swallow-tailed kites, white-tailed hawks, and bald eagles, just to name a few. 

In addition to the world class birding opportunities, the 3,261-acre wildlife oasis is home to numerous species of plants, mammals, reptiles, insects, and amphibians. The Ranch has several custom-built wildlife viewing and photography blinds. Each blind is strategically placed in areas of high wildlife activity and generally near water sources.
