Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is on most nature photographers’ bucket lists, and for good reason. Upwards of 15,000 sandhill cranes and around 50,000 Ross’s and snow geese spend part of the winter there. The opportunities for bird photography are, as one might imagine, simply incredible. Just ask anyone who’s been there. The stories they tell will make you want to pack your camera bag immediately!
The National Wildlife Refuges were created to manage, conserve and restore fish, wildlife and plants and the ecosystems that sustain them.
Story and photographs by Jeff Parker
The National Parks have famously been called “America’s best idea”. I have visited many of our National Parks and they ARE awesome. However, I tend to think that our National Wildlife Refuges are “America’s Better Idea”.
