"Trip Log ... April 15, 2010"
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 !!!

Nice spring day with sun and on/off overcast ... New photographed Refuge bird for me - found the Red-breasted Nuthach along the canyon road.

Chestnut-backed Chickadee ... Black-throated Gray Warbler ... Marsh Wren ... Savannah Sparrow ... Song Sparrow ... Red-winged Blackbird ... Western Scrub Jay ... Greater Yellowlegs ...
