"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Townsend's Warbler"
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 !!

First spotted a Townsend's Warbler in 2009, along the Canyon Road at the River "S", however no pictures were obtained. Next sighting was on the Carty Unit in 2011, with not-super-sharp but definitely images of a male Townsend's !!!

The following are images of the Townsend's Warbler. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildflowers, and wildlife seen each day.
