I had a pretty mellow trip to Ridgefield yesterday morning... I didn't see a single coyote or bittern or owl, so certain people can stop poking fun at me! In fact, birding was pretty tame and it was a quartet of river otters that stole the show...

Another highlight was a lone Eurasian Wigeon on Rest Lake:
And lastly, Tundra Swans are always nice to see:
