"Julia Butler Hansen NWR, Washington ... August 9, 2012"
The Trip:    BEAUTIFUL summer day ... high clouds came in eventually, but high 70s temperatures and a nice breeze ... the "highlight" was a Greater Yellowlegs.

Julia Butler Hansen NWR:    Located in southwestern Washington and northwestern Oregon, the Julia Butler Hansen Refuge was established in 1972 specifically to protect and manage the endangered Columbian white-tailed deer. The refuge contains over 5,600 acres of pastures, forested tidal swamps, brushy woodlots, marshes, and sloughs along the Columbia River in both Washington and Oregon.
