Occupying much of the southern portion of the national seashore, Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is a magnet for both birds and bird-watchers. It provides birds with food sources and diversified habitats, including manmade impoundments with controlled water levels. Some birds live there, but most are Atlantic Flyway visitors, stopping in the spring or fall either briefly or for the winter. The refuge's other wildlife forms include some of the island's famed wild horses (known locally as "ponies") and Sika deer (actually a small breed of elk native to Japan).
