Birds of Bosque del Apache 


After White Sands, I moved onto Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and surrounding area to enjoy and photograph the thousands of Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese that spend part of the winter here.  Even without the birds, it's a beautiful and interesting landscape which I have highlighted in another gallery.
