Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge
"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Trip Log ... January 30, 2012"
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 !!!

Overcast cool breezy winter day with occasional sunbreaks ... lots of bird action (had 45 species) but not alot of photo opportunities ...
