"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Trip Log ... October 27, 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 !!!

Beautiful fall morning with a nippy wind ... overcast came in early afternoon ... TWO new Refuge photo birds ... a Black Phoebe and a very bad picture of a Pacific/Winter Wren ...

Very bad picture of a Pacific Wren (formerly the Winter Wren). Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, Washington, River "S" Unit. Image taken, October 27, 2010.


While I've seen and heard the Pacific/Winter Wren many times, I've not been able to "capture" him in a photograph ... this image is by far the best I've managed ... the Wren likes the middle of the canyon road which doesn't have much lighting, plus he only pops into view for seconds at a time ... it was just too dark along the road this morning and the camera chose a slow shutter speed.
