Today, my Mom (Olive) and I birded with Carol Ledford on the River "S" Unit at Ridgefield NWR (~4mi W of I-5 at Exit 14 in SW Washington; http://www.fws.gov/ridgefieldrefuges/ ).
I was there from about 8:15AM until 3:45PM, and it was pretty rainy most of the time.
COMMON TEAL: This Teal has been at RNWR for over a month, but it keeps moving around, so you need to look at all Green-winged Teal .
MERLIN: Carol spotted this Little Beauty while we were scanning Long Lake. It flew from the snag it was perched on, and we lost it shortly after we both saw it.
VIRGINIA RAIL: We heard one and saw two VIRGINIA RAIL at the road edge of South Quigley Lake about 40 feet beyond the S Quigley turnout.
