"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Lesser Yellowlegs"
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 !!!

Often seen in the company of its bigger "cousin", the Greater Yellowlegs.

The following are images captured of the Lesser Yellowlegs, arranged monthly. Not all Lesser Yellowlegs 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.
