Each year, thousands of sandhill cranes come to winter at the Bosque del Apache National Wildllife Refuge, south of Socorro, New Mexico. I visited the Bosque and photographed cranes over the period November 12 - 17, 2009, sharing a very enjoyable time with my photographer friend Karl Gerstenberger. This gallery shows cranes at sunrise and sunset, cranes in flight, individual cranes in flight and roosting, crane families, cranes in parachute landings, and even some cranes staring down a coyote.
