On my drive up to Ridgefield the freeway was foggy, then sunny, then foggy and I had no idea what I'd get at Ridgefield. As I descended into the refuge, the fog was lifting.
Great Egrets were seen.
White-throated Sparrow on the trail to the blind...and I have a photo to prove it!
(I just love these guys. Two winters ago I had two in my backyard and was disappointed to not have any last winter. On Monday I saw one in the garden!!!! and hope he comes back for an extended stay.)
I saw more Sandhill Cranes flying over, but this one was near the newly plowed wetlands across from the Kiwa Trail and he was making alot of noise.
I saw a number of Great Blue Herons....a reliable sighting at Ridgefield.
A Northern Harrier was flying all over the refuge...maybe there was more than one?
What the heck is this? It appears to be a pile of nutria? Really? Do they do this?
Next time: a cutie I saw at Ridgefield.
