…Flock together in New Mexico.
Below is a small slide-show I put together using several photos of our native New Mexican birds. Many pics were taken at the feeders in my yard; it is amazing what a bit of water and seed can do out here in the desert! Roadrunners generally do not associate with other birds as they are considered to be predators…yet, for several months, we had a Runner that came to visit every day and he got along quite well with the Mourning Dove, Sparrows, Quail and Robins that were also daily visitors at our watering hole.
Other photos were taken during our various camping trips up in the Gila Wilderness…it is a treat to get to hang out with the birds that don’t visit us down here in the flatlands… like the Blue Jays & Nuthatches. It’s also a joy to watch the Turkey Vultures, ducks, wild geese and even a hawk or two in flight…unfortunately I am much better at watching than I am at getting good photos of the action…my brain freezes and I forget to click when I should…ah well, it’s all fun in the end.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the show of our fine desert flying friends!
