|Sandhill Crane coming in for landing|
I have just reprocessed a set of pictures from Bosque del Apache Of Sandhill Cranes. Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico is a wintering ground for the Sandhill Cranes and in fact, every November, there is a week long. "Festival of the Cranes"
Observing these magnificent birds from them resting in pools to their flight and landing and then feeding in the corn fields is a sight to behold. Possibly this coming year, I can make it back to Bosque del Apache for the enjoyment, thrill and photographic possibilities that are available.
If you are going to travel to Bosque del Apache, not with a instructional group, then I recommend Artie Morris's site guide to Bosque that is available at https://store.birdsasart.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=72.
