"Trip Log ... January 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 !!!

First trip in 2008 !!!!!!!!! ... That's because I went the other direction earlier in the year to see the Arctic Loon near Brownsmead (Click on "Beyond Ridgefield" above).

This trip includes ... American Goldfinch ... American Kestel ... American Wigeon ... Canada Goose ... Glaucous-winged Gull ... Golden-crowned Sparrow ... Great Egret ... Lesser Scaup ... Mallard ... Northern Flicker ... Northern Harrier ... Northern Pintail ... Red-tailed Hawk ... Ring-necked Duck ... Rough-legged Hawk ... Ruddy Duck ... Savannah Sparrow ... Song Sparrow ... Tundra Swan ...
