First Flight

Snow Geese numbering in the thousands upon thousands take their first morning flight at sunrise. Flyout at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico during migration is something everyone should see! If you are lucky you will be rewarded with a beautiful sunrise for your efforts of getting up before dawn to be there on time. Bosque is an amazing place that has had some great success. In 1941, only 17 Sandhill Cranes used the refuge. Sandhills now number as high as 17,000 on the refuge.
