Bosque del Apache Festival of Cranes

By November 14, 2011

Follow me on:


The annual Festival of the Cranes at the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge takes place this week. For six days, bird lovers and those who make the annual trek to see the beauty of central New Mexico will converge at the refuge. The morning flyoffs are a sight that should be on everyone's bucket list.

The festival's Wildlife Expo takes place Friday through Sunday and features talks by bird experts, visits with rescued wildlife, demos by blacksmiths, and more. Vendors will have local honey, food and other items. The visitor center will be open and there will be a wide variety of topics for anyone interested in learning more about birds and wildlife. The auto loop tour will be open from one hour before sunset until one hour after sunset, and volunteers at the observation decks along the route will answer questions.

We know New Mexico is a good thing, and the birds do too.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

My understanding is that blog pages can vary on the user’s end depending on their browser, so your problem is not uncommon. There is an excellent site on About.com called Web Design/HTML, authored by Jennifer Kyrnin that may help. Here’s the link: http://webdesign.about.com/

The morning flyoffs really are something special. Pretty tough to describe in words that do it justice. It definitely is a bucket list item.

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on
a daily basis. It’s always helpful to read articles from other authors and practice something from other sites.

Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one!
It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
