Thanksgiving in Texas -- Nov. and Dec. 2010

Day 29, December 12. Enroute to Albuquerque, we birded Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge all day and saw about 54 species of birds (fully half of the total for the entire trip). We then drove north to Albuquerque to stay with Liz's brother. Bill was out of town, so it was nice to have some time with Karen all to ourselves.
