"Trip Log ... April 6, 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 most of the day with occasional sunbreaks ... highlights were the two Surf Scoters, a breeding-plumaged Horned Grebe, and BABY BALD EAGLES !!!!!!!!
