The area is divided into a figure eight driving loop. One half of the loop is woodsy and I've never seen any cranes around. This trip was no exception. In fact, except for different kinds of ducks and some beautiful scenery it was downright boring. I imagine my SIL and MIL were wondering why they even came.
Notice the branches along the banks (to stop erosion?) There were some really pretty views of the Chupadera Mountains.
I was able to practice my zooming skills on the distant ducks and geese.
Across the lake, the trees held a national treasure. On the very left is an adult Bald Eagle and there are two young eagles near him. If you look closely, you can see at least three or four other young eagles in the tree on the right. Notice the geese and cranes in front. We'd finally found the waterfowl we were looking for.
Raptor looking at me!
Here's my SIL and a stranger looking at the birds in the distance.
