"Trip Log ... August 10, 2008"
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 !!!

Warm and slightly overcast and "siesta time" for the birds ... however a white Nutria family gave me a good show !!!!!!

This trip includes ... Northern Harrier ... American Bittern ... Barn Swallow ... American Goldfinch ... White Nutria ... Bird's-foot Trefoil ...
