Bosque Del Apache - Part 1

From January 23rd through January 27th we visited one of our favorite wildlife watching and photography places, the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge just south of Socorro, New Mexico.

This refuge makes it easy to view the thousands of Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes that spend the winter here.  There is also a wide variety of other birds and mammals that are frequently seen in the refuge.
