"Trip Log ... September 20, 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 ... weather overcast and gray ... arrived around 3:30 to find over 200 shorebirds on Rest Lake, including the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper ... also present were over 150 Long-billed Dowitchers, 20 or so Pectoral Sandpipers, plus Westerns, Leasts, and Greater Yellowlegs ... saw the Sharp-tailed four times but not for long thanks to bunches of Killdeer who kept setting the flock to flight ...
