Red-tailed Hawk. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Left image taken September 29, 2008. Right image taken November 16, 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 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 !!!

My first views of the Red-tailed Hawk were in December in the fog when I didn't know what the bird was, and I owned only a small point-and-shoot camera. Since then I've managed to get delightful views of the bird !!!

The following are images captured of the Red-tailed Hawk, arranged monthly. Not all images of the Red-tailed Hawk 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.
