Photo 3 – Foot Race

Location: Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico

Date: December 20, 2017

Description: Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis)

Typically over 10,000 sandhill cranes and over 20,000 Ross’s and snow geese over winter at Bosque del Apache. The birds spend the night in water to protect themselves from predators. Near dawn, the geese take off in what is known as “Blast Off” in search of fields throughout the Middle Rio Grande Valley to feed in for the day. Smaller groups of sandhill cranes then leave the safety of the water for the same reason.
