"Trip Log ... September 10 and 11, 2014"
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 !!!

September 10:   late afternoon/early evening trip ... nice and breezy which kept the temperatures nice ... not many birds around but gorgeous lighting on what was there !!!!!!! ... there were lots of ducks on Long Lake but I didn't bother to separate species ... Rest Lake is drawn down and dry, letting the grass grow for the Swans ... SPECTACULAR views of two Bitterns hunting ...    September 11:   went back again to enjoy the spectacular lighting, late afternoon/early evening trip ... had a Green Heron !!!!
