Great Blue Heron. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, November 24, 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 Carty Unit has miles of trails including a 2-mile "Oaks to Wetlands" trail. A pair of binoculars is a must and a camera makes it even more fun !!!

Plentiful around the Refuge and fun to photograph !!! ... Note this is a BIG file and will be slower to load ... someday it will be split into smaller files, but in the meanwhile, relax and enjoy the images.

The following are select images captured of the Great Blue Heron, arranged monthly. MANY more Great Blue Heron images are scattered throughout the Trip Logs and not presented on this page. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.

May 26, 2007 ... May 26, 2007, Trip Log

The following events played out in front of the bird blind on the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge's "S" Unit Auto Tour. A Great Blue Heron arrived looking for a meal and the birds in the area defended their young. The Heron first eyed the baby Coots near the blind (see above) and was charged by the Coot adults. The Heron then changed location from near the blind to near the edge of the lake where he/she was attacked by a male Red-winged Blackbird and chased away. The Heron finally landed at various locations in the lake where eventually he battled a Grebe protecting his/her half-grown chick (???). The chick lost.
