"Trip Log ... November 13, 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 !!!

Went late afternoon on a rainy drizzly day ... horrible photographic weather as most shots were at 1/60th or slower !!!!!!! ... however got my first (albeit bad) Fox Sparrow photos for the Refuge !!!

This trip includes:   Northern Harrier ... Sandhill Crane ... Great Egret ... Tundra Swan ... Greater White-fronted Geese ... Canada Goose (banded Dusky) ... Northern Shoveler ... Belted Kingfisher ... Spotted Towhee ... Red-breasted Sapsucker ... American Goldfinch ... Golden-crowned Sparrow ... Song Sparrow ... Fox Sparrow ... Coyote ...
