This unit consists of 2,200 acres, most of which are old fields or cultivated farmland. There are 25 ponds on a 400-acre portion of the unit, previously managed as a commercial catfish operation. Twenty nine species of shorebirds have been recorded on the refuge. The refuge also holds a large concentration of ducks and several species of geese in winter. Marsh birds such as sedge wrens, marsh wrens, common yellow-throats, soras, and king rails are regularly seen and heard at the Black Bayou Unit.
