Hooded Merganser, male. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, December 8, 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 !!!

One of my favorite photographic subjects !!!!

The following are images captured of the Hooded Merganser, arranged by month. Not all images of the Hooded Merganser are shown here, more may 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.
