"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Sharp-tailed Sandpiper"
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 !!!

Rare bird to be seen at the Refuge, but they do show up ... never could locate the one which appeared around 2009 or 2010 ... however, with the help of more experienced birders managed three rather mediocre digiscoped images of the one who showed up in 2012 ...

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