"Black-crowned Night-Heron ... August 26, 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 !!!

Beautiful morning ... got up early and at the Refuge to look for the Black-crowned Night-Heron ... SUCCESS !!! ... A NEW Refuge bird for me ... stayed on him for 45 minutes while he was fishing, waiting for SOMETHING to happen, when he finally caught something.
