Bullock's Oriole, baby and "papa". Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, June 19, 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 Bullock's Orioles built a nest overhanging the eastern end of the wooden bridge crossing Lake River.

The following are images captured of the Bullock's Oriole. Not all Bullock's Oriole images are shown here, more can 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.
