"Trip Log ... August 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 !!!

Day was expected to be hot, sunny, and near 100 degrees ... arrived just after 7 a.m. to search for Shorebirds ... SUCCESS !!! ... found three new shorebirds on Rest Lake - the Red-necked Phalarope, Baird's Sandpiper, and Semipalmated Sandpiper ... also had the Sharp-shinned Hawk !!! ...
