2020—Not Just Cranes and Geese

Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge has lots more to offer than Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese. Of course the main attractions are the Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese but winter is a time to see lots of other birds there. At the refuge’s visitor center, just outside the main entrance, there are opportunities to see lots of other birds, drawn to the area by water features and feeding stations. This White-crowned Sparrow posed for me for quite a while while Gambel’s Quail scurried beneath in the brush.
