"Trip Log ... May 19, 2007"
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 !!!

The day was overcast with flat lighting, perfect for shooting the Great Egret in flight.

Todays trip includes ... Great Egrets (in flight) ... Song Sparrow ... Savannah Sparrow ... American Goldfinch ... Barn Swallow ... Tree Swallow ... Pied-billed Grebe ... Ruddy Duck ... Gadwall ... Mallard ... Red-winged Blackbird ... Nootka Rose (Wild Rose) ...
