Sorry I haven’t posted much this week but I’ve been “on the road again” to the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Preserve in the little town of San Antonio, New Mexico. If you’re not familiar with this place, it is the winter home for tens of thousands of snow geese (52,000 by last week’s official count) as well as 7,000 sandhill cranes and many other species of bird as well as the normal New Mexican wildlife. I’ll have lots more to post from here but here’s just a quick shot to get you attuned. This was taken during one of the twice daily mass “fly-outs” of the snow geese. They rest in the ponds at night for protection from predators and then in early morning (and then again in the afternoon) they all flight out at one time – quite the sight (and sound)!
