Ridgefield birds, and darning success

11/30/2019  Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge, WA

On a cold morning we walked the Oaks to Wetlands Trail in the northern unit – the best views are from the railroad bridge. (Hike #55, 2 miles)

We then drove the Auto Tour Route in the southern River ‘S’ unit and saw many more birds than were here in early October.
