Ridgefield NWR 02-25-11

I spent a couple hours this afternoon at Ridgefield sorta hoping I might stumble across the Barnacle Goose, but no luck there...  Found some other good birds though.

First off there were tons of hawks around....


All Red-taileds from what I could tell. 


I think I finally found the Harlan's too- and then took really really terrible photos of it!



Near the marshy area where the snipe flock hangs out were a couple of snipe very close to the road....



That was rad.  Towards the end of the loop I heard some rustling in a bush... I drove up a bit and saw a Fox Sparrow digging up leaves and making a mess.  


Pretty cute!  That was about it for the afternoon...  Good times!
