Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge
"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Trip Log ... April 5, 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 with drizzle ... went to see if the Surf Scoter male, who had been reported there yesterday, was still there ... SUCCESS !!! ... and not only was he there (on South Quigley Lake), but so was a female.
