Bald Eagle, adult. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, April 3, 2008.

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 are images captured of the Bald Eagle, arranged monthly. Not all images of the Bald Eagle are shown here, more may be found throughout the Trip Logs. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.

For a long time the immature Bald Eagle perched high looking across Rest Lake. The adult flew in and chased him off before perching himself. These three images, while pushing the range of my camera equipment, show differences between the young eagle (3rd year ???) and the adult.
