"Vancouver Lake Lowlands, Vancouver, Washington ... July 6, 2015"
The Trip:    HOT summer day (in the 90s) ... went to the end of Lower River Road to see if we could hear/find the Chat which Bob F. had reported there 2 days earlier ... no luck ... the Osprey nest had THREE chicks in it !!!!!!!!!! ... also stops at Frenchman's Bar Park, Blurock Landing, and "Lower River Road Pond" (a.k.a. Rufener's Pond and Elmer's Pond") ...

"Lower River Road Pond" and "Rufener/Elmer's Pond":    "Lower River Road Pond", "Rufener's Pond" and "Elmer's Pond" are all un-official names for a large pond located on the east side of Lower River Road. The wetlands are owned by the Port of Vancouver who in 2004 bought the Elmer Rufener property. (Note, the Vancouver Audubon Society uses the mis-spelling "Ruefner's Pond" in their newsletters.) The wetlands are part of the "Columbia River Wetland Mitigation Bank".
