I loved the few hours I spent at Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge last winter (and got some great photos that day), so I was eager to return again this year. I had hopes of spending more time there this time, but had too many work obligations to tend to, so could only spare a couple hours away one afternoon. What an afternoon it turned out to be though! Again, some wonderfully photogenic birds greeted my camera lens.
Hoping someone can tell me what kind of hawk this is—sure was a pretty one!
Next up, were the signature Sandhill Cranes that Bosque is known for. There again did not seem to be huge numbers of them here (mid-January is a bit past their peak), but there were plenty of them strutting around waiting for their photos to be taken!
Another incredible day at Bosque!
