Red-winged Blackbird, male. Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, May 23, 2009.

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 !!!

Fun birds to photograph as they often sit there right along the road side.

The following are images captured of the Red-winged Blackbird, arranged monthly. Not all Red-winged Blackbird images shot are shown on this page and more will be found scattered throughout the Trip Logs. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.
