"Bosque del Apache- New Years Day 2012" Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge by lisa85202

Flight Deck at Dawn

Thousands of snow geese come to Bosque del Apache each winter. Arrive before dawn to catch take off for their morning flight. We caught them flying directly over our car while driving around the loop while it was still dark. Here is a small flock lifting up from the water.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great for Bird Watching- best in the winter months before dawn.
  • Cons:Usually quite cold!-
  • In a nutshell:Bird Watching Superstar Destination
