"Trip Log ... August 27, 2009"
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 !!!

Mid-morning to early afternoon trip on a 90 degree day ... very quiet ... however managed some of my BEST-TO-DATE shots of the Belted Kingfisher.

This trip includes ... American Goldfinch ... Belted Kingfisher ... Killdeer ... White Nutria ... Woodland Skipper ...
