The Annual Migration (graphics and text by A. Leon Miler)

November 29, 2011

They come to Bosque del Apache every fall to watch the annual migration of photographers who usually arrive at dawn, bundled up in their warmest clothing, and burdened down with massive amounts of camera equipment.

The sandhill cranes chatter a bit among themselves, commenting on the migration, and then fly out, dispersing up and down the Rio Grande valley checking out the corn, chili, and alfalfa fields for breakfast.

The photographers also slowly disperse, usually looking for hot coffee and, perhaps, a breakfast burrito.

I have attempted to come up with some different approaches to presenting sandhill cranes (Grus canadensis).   Enjoy & comment.
