2017—Bosque 8:00 AM

Each morning at Bosque del Apache, after the Snow Geese have exploded and flown en masse to the farm fields to forage, the Sandhill Cranes begin to peel off in ones and twos and sometimes in family groups of three.  This Sandhill Crane left the Train Ponds to fly to the fields to forage for the day precisely at 8:00 AM.  About this time, the pink glow of morning sunrise begins to fade and the last of the gorgeous morning light kisses the feathers of the birds as they fly off.
