No. 5 In the Sky: Bosque Del Apache
You couldn’t carry enough seed to feed these birds if you tried. The nearly 60,000-acre Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is a year-round oasis and roosting place, where tens of thousands of birds gather. Fall and Winter are the most feather-friendly seasons, though spring and summer boast their fair share of wildlife and recreation, making it a worthwhile excursion anytime. Wing-peepers tip: Try to capture a photo as a big group of birds erupts in flight. Truly a sight to behold – and to hear – for yourself.
