Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico truly comes to life during the return of the sandhill cranes each year. With expert birder Norm Lewis, experience the spectacle of the cranes and look for snow and Ross’s geese, bald eagles, roadrunners, and waterfowl that fill the area with sights and sound. This wildlife refuge is popularly known as a wintering site for sandhill cranes
and snow geese, and rightfully so; by November its marshes and prairies are festooned with thousands of cranes and geese. This adventure will include many more beautiful bird sites in the state, such as Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge, a major wintering area for waterfowl, and the Rio Grande Nature Center in Albuquerque. With a variety of exciting destinations and a long list of potential birds to sight, this will be a southwestern experience not soon forgotten!
