Bird Sightings

Weekly Bird Sightings


July 25, 2014

Notice! The sightings below are not exhaustive. These are sightings that a number of birders, working collaboratively, have noted at the River "S" unit of the Ridgefield NWR throughout the week. It is our wish that this list, usually updated daily, will give you an idea of what you can find at the refuge and will inspire you to "go birding" and make up your own list. Perhaps you will be the one to find some of the uncommon (**), occasionally seen (***), or rare (****) birds.

Good Luck and Happy Birding!
