The Randall Davey Audubon center in Santa Fe was one of the highlights of my trip. I stumbled upon a birdwatching group, and they were nice enough to let me join.
Abundant hummingbirds at the nature center. This is a black-chinned hummingbird, a new one for me. I could have just stayed there and watched them zipping around all day long!
Another new bird, Evening grosbeak. It was at this point that I started to regret leaving the DSLR at home!
It was a great walk with friendly people.
My last stop was Albuquerque again. I had a few hours of daylight left so I headed over to the BioPark to see the serpentarium. They had an impressive collection of snakes.
Sri-Lankan Palm Viper
Speaking of Rhinoceros, I couldn't resist this shot.
This Western Fence lizard relaxed in the shade with me
The next day, it was time to head home!
Lots of bird activity at home. Cardinals, wrens, bluejays, and woodpeckers are all nesting nearby.
Hope to get some shots of the babies soon!
