"Trip Log ... December 9, 2011"
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 !!!

Quick trip on a cold thursday morning to look for the Snowy Owl which had been seen there the day before ... no luck ...

This trip includes:   American Bittern ... American Kestrel ... Northern Harrier ... Red-tailed Hawk ...
