"Trip Log ... September 18, 2012"
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 !!!

Went out late afternoon to see if the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper was still there ... SUCCESS !!! ... Tom McNamara scoped the bird (THANKS TOM) and then directed the rest of us on the bird ... managed some bad digiscoped images, but definitely identifiable ...
