"Trip Log ... March 6, 2009"
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 !!!

This trip includes ... Hooded Merganser ... Common Merganser ... Bewick's Wren ... Bald Eagle ... American Bittern ... Great Blue Heron ... Barn Owl ...
