"Mink"
The River "S" Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge has a 4.2 mile auto tour route and 1.5 mile seasonal hiking trail. The auto tour is an excellent way to see the Refuge. A pair of binoculars is a must and a camera makes it even more fun !!!

The following is a collection of images taken of the Mink, as seen at the Refuge. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildlife, and wildflowers taken each day.

Mink ... and my car ... March 30, 2008, Trip Log

I believe the sound of the camera shutter caught the Mink's attention. He came up withing 10 feet of the car looking towards the sound.
