"Bald Eagle nest, 2012"
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 a Bald Eagle nest, located between the River "S" auto tour route and Lake River.
