"Trip Log ... September 21, 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 !!!

Overcast gray friday ... went out to work on the Refuge's weekly bird count ... came home with 34 species ... no shorebirds on Rest Lake other than a few Long-billed Dowitchers, Pectoral Sandpipers, and Killdeer ... no Sharp-tailed Sandpiper seen ...

Photos include:    American Goldfinch ... Black Phoebe ... Sandhill Cranes ... Wood Duck ...
