"Eurasian Wigeon"
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 !!!

A very beautiful bird, first seen in November 2008.

The following are images captured of the Eurasian Wigeon, arranged monthly. Not all Eurasian Wigeon images are seen 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.
