BOSQUE DEL APACHE 4039

"Safe Zone"

A group of Canada Geese along with a few Sandhill Cranes rests in a field at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The fields provide food and a modicum of protection from coyotes, their main predator at the refuge. The birds are usually clustered in the middle of these fields, so they can see the coyotes coming in time to take off and avoid being caught by one.
