November Colors At Ankeny Wildlife Refuge

Popular with birders and nature enthusiasts alike, Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge provides views of a simpler, less habited Willamette Valley. Located a few miles south of South Salem, near Talbot, Oregon, the refuge is a collection of several viewpoints and a couple short hikes. Wildlife is abundant. Heron, egrets, grebes, ducks, geese, frogs, several kinds of song birds and birds of prey are commonly seen.
