2019 US Southwestern Trip Wildlife
Changde Wu 2020-02-05
Wildlife watching and photographing were a very important component of our year end 2019 southwestern US trip. One of the motivation of this trip is visiting the world famous Bosque Del Apache NWR for Sandhill cranes. This page shares the wildlife photos that are either unique in the western US area or general interests.
(1) New birds
These birds are either only found in western part of America or first in my birds list.
(2) Nice to see again
These birds appear all over the America. But nice to see them in west again.
(3) Water fowls
Water fowls, most of them are wild ducks, are very common birds in the water. Yet very difficult to identify. Unfortunately, they always try to be far away from the land side. I have managed got many photos of them this time, and identified several species.
I saw the Bobcat first time, and was lucky taking several photos of this cute animal in Chiricahua National Monument.
