The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge of New Mexico is one of the most glorious nature preserves in the United States.
From mid-November through February each year it provides a winter home to many species of migrating birds. Perhaps most famous for its Sandhill Crane population, it also teems with Snow Geese, Canada Geese, Bald Eagles and other raptors, and a myriad assortment of ducks and other waterfowl, birds and mammals.
During the author's days there, over 15,000 Cranes and over 30,000 Snow Geese were in attendance. Anyone who has ever experienced the dawn fly out or evening fly in of these magnificent creatures will never forget it.
It's too bad the sounds associated with these events can't be heard as a supplement to the images in this book.
