It is not all Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge (Socorro, New Mexico) when I visit in November each year. There are a few passerines around, especially around the Visitor Center. The feeders in the Cactus Garden attract White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Pyrrhuloxias, to name a few. I rarely get to see a Pyrrhuloxia, so I do enjoy watching the feeders. This female came late one afternoon when I snuck out of the exhibits tent to see what was happening at the feeders.
