"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Hutton's Vireo"
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 !!

"The name vireo signifies a green finch and is from the Latin word meaning "to be green". The body color of nearly all the species is more or less olive green." ["Birds and Nature", December 1901, vol.X, no.4]

The following are images of the Hutton's Vireo. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.
