You can take two approaches to looking for wildlife. One, find a promising place and sit there as long as you can, waiting for something interesting to come along (you might call this the duck hunter's strategy). Two, go someplace, take a look around, and then move on. This would be the moving-on strategy (much more in keeping with the restless American spirit). With over 60 national wildlife refuges, North Dakota is particularly conducive to the latter approach. Several of the state's refuges have scenic drives, making wildlife-watching the ideal pursuit for the most curious creature in the field -- the American family in their car.
