"Trip Log ... August 20, 2011"
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 !!!

Quick mid-morning trip AND quick early evening trip to the Refuge to see if the Snowy Egret was there, as he had been spotted again the previous day ... nope ... very quiet ... temperature hit 95 today ... didn't spend much time at the Refuge either trip, only checked out Rest Lake ... Greater Yellowlegs, Long-billed Dowitchers, and Western/Least Sandpipers on the lake ... plus a Great Egret who was still in partial breeding plumage ... very few images taken.

This trip includes:
