"Trip Log ... December 17, 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 !!!

Audubon's Christmas Bird Count day !!!!!!!!!!! ... cold and foggy to start with, ending up a nice day ... not many pictures taken as I was to count "tweets" and any bird not on the water (unless it was one of the more unusual species) ... the group I was in ended up with 62 species after 8 hours on the River "S" loop ... Camera equipment: Canon Rebel XSi, 300z.
