Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese

Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese are just two of the migratory birds that frequent the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge of New Mexico. This is a “featured” image because of it’s popularity with the birders on Fine Art America.

The common name of the Sandhill Crane refers to the areas this bird frequents like the Platte River near the sand hills of Nebraska. Sandhills have one of the longest fossil records of any bird alive today with fossils dating back 10 million years.
