"Trip Log ... September 5, 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 !!!

Labor Day afternoon ... LOTS of cars and people ... had intended to walk around the North Unit but discovered it was closed ... drove the South Unit instead and walked the Kiwa Trail ... warm summer afternoon ... didn't expect many birds, but surprisingly there were a few ... new photo bird - the Vaux's Swift ... did not have the "big" equipment, just a nice-to-carry Canon T1i with 300 zoom ...
