Bosque del Apache NWR

Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico

It can be no secret, if you've read previous entries on this blog, that I love spending time in national wildlife refuges, and this one in New Mexico was especially beautiful. Huge fields are planted with corn and harvested at different times during the spring and summer only to provide food for the migrating birds. Wow!

I saw lots of ducks, turtles, snow geese, sandhill and whooping cranes, hawks and other raptors and many crows when I was there. And a big sky to hold all of the birds.
