Hello Tweeters,



We've been busy with company, so here's a slightly late report of our nice
day at Ridgefield NWR on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Before I begin, let me just
drop a little hint - WEAR BUG SPRAY if you're getting out of your vehicle.
We remembered the sunscreen, though.



We saw and/ or heard at least 29 species along the Auto Tour and ran across
a fellow flickrite (Hi George) on the Kiwa Trail. There were many bird calls
we didn't recognize, so the species count is only for those identified. A
few photos were snapped by me and my husband:
