The National Wildlife Refuge on Block Island, established in 1973, spans over 130 acres and is a popular stop for birds to rest, refuel, and nest along the Atlantic Flyway, the bird migration route along the East Coast. The refuge is popular among bird lovers and watchers offering sights of various migratory songbirds and shorebirds as well as waterfowl and raptors including Herons, Gulls, Pipers, Plovers, Sparrows, Ducks, and Peregrine Falcons. While beautiful views can be found throughout the island, the Cow Cove/North Light area within the refuge is well known for it's views of Sachem Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can also see Settlers Rock and the Sacred Labyrinth in this area. Block Island also offers many tourist areas beyond the refuge for swimming, recreational sports, lodging, and shopping.
