Sandhill Crane

On 3 March 2014, Erika and I began our homeward drive from New Mexico. Our first destination was Santa Fe for a car tuneup, computer repair, a fancy dinner or two, and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum. But first we stopped at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, a location I have always wanted to visit.

The refuge is most famous, perhaps, for their huge, wintering flocks of Sandhill Cranes. As often happens in our travels, we were a week late to see the cranes—we only saw three. But, as you will see in the next several posts, other birds abounded. We highly recommend stopping at the refuge if you are ever in the vicinity at any time of the year.
