Hummingbird Photography with Jerry Goffe
Saturday, May 25, 8 a.m. − Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, NM
Learn about photographing hummingbirds from one of Audubon’s 2013 calendar photographers. Practice doing it yourself. Meet at visitor center.
Bosque del Apache is Spanish for “woods of the Apache,” and is rooted in the time when the Spanish observed Apaches routinely camped in the riverside forest. Since then the name has come to mean one of the most spectacular National Wildlife Refuges in North America. Here, tens of thousands of birds–including sandhill cranes, Arctic geese, and many kinds of ducks–gather each autumn and stay through the winter. Feeding snow geese erupt in explosions of wings when frightened by a stalking coyote, and at dusk, flight after flight of geese and cranes return to roost in the marshes.
