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 !!!

The following are images captured of the Ring-billed Gull, arranged monthly. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.

... "one leg" ... July 31, 2007, Trip Log

On July 31, 2007, very few Ring-billed Gulls were at Rest Lake (3 or 4 only) ... out of the three individual Ring-billed Gulls photographed, two had missing legs. The juvenile (below and see juvenile above) was missing his/her left leg, and the adult (see vertical shot above) was missing his/her right leg. The second adult image (again, see above) appears to have two legs. What are the odds !!!!!!!!!
