Bosque del Apache—Special Field Trip

Join me on my annual winter pilgrimage to my favorite birding spot. We’ll spend two days at Bosque del Apache, near Socorro, New Mexico, meeting at 6:30 AM both mornings to take in the magnificent liftoff of snow geese and a continuous train of thousands of Sandhill Cranes. After the morning spectacle, we’ll bird the refuge with the goal of finding 75 species.

We’ll also spend one day birding the Manzano Mountain area in search of Pinyon Jays and all three species of bluebirds, plus a trip to the Sandia Crest in search of all three species of Rosy-Finches.

Contact Jim Moore,, if you would like to join me. Bring your camera.
