Barn Swallow, adult and babies. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, July 14, 2007.

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 Barn Swallow, arranged monthly, then by "flight", then by "nests, 2007, 2008, and 2009". Not all Barn Swallow images are shown here, more can be found throughout the Trip Logs.
