"Trip Log ... August 24, 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 !!!

Overcast with light drizzle on/off ... not a great photogenic day at all ... saw a greater variety of wildflowers and weed blossoms than I did of birds ...

This trip includes ... American Goldfinch ... Belted Kingfisher ... Great Egret ... Green Heron ... Mallard ... Nutria (white and normal) ... Broadleaf Plantain ... English Plantain ... Field Bindweed ... Mayweed Chamomile ... Moth Mullein ... Pearly Everlasting ... Pennyroyal ...
