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

Beautiful summer day ... overcast and breezy until about noon when the sun came out ... NEW Refuge bird - the American Avocet !!!!!!!!!!! ... overall logged in 43 different bird species, plus the Black-tailed Deer and a Coyote ...
