"Trip Log ... May 3 and 6, 2013"
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 !!!

Gorgeous rather windy "summer" day with temps near 80 ... LOTS of Yellow-rumped Warblers ... plus TWO Bald Eagle babies and found one Great Horned Owl fledgling ... shorebirds on Canvasback Lake ...

went back on Monday, May 6th to see if the Wilson's Phalarope on Canvasback Lake was still there ... two had been spotted on the 5th ... SUCCESS !!!!!!!!!!! ... another hot spring day ...
