Check out the Duck Banding Project pics at the 2014 Festival of the Cranes November 18-23, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, Socorro New Mexico A fine duck event with lots of waterfowl. My gloss on the Festival: The Bosque del Apache Festival of Cranes is one of the most famous and successful of its kind. The Refuge Facebook is well worth looking at especially for the stunning crane photography at this time of year. The Festival Brochure (link on the FB) has an impressive array of events with many on photography. Bird numbers at the Festival? The NWR bird survey for 11/18/14 (as reported on the FB) included an estimated 40,050 Light Geese (Snow and Ross's Geese), 71,447 Ducks, 10,453 Sandhill Cranes, and 28 species of raptors. Lots of birds. Waterfowl numbers topping 100,000. Our local scene and counterpart? Late February and early March. The Friends of Goose Pond Marsh Madness Sandhill Crane Festival at Goose Pond FWA in Greene County Indiana had an estimated 20,000 Snow Geese last year on March 1, 2014. Our MM Festival high for Sandhill Cranes for one day was 11,200 Sandhills on March 6, 2010. Marsh Madness weekend next year will be on March 6-7 2015 .--Lee Sterrenburg DNR bird monitoring volunteer Goose Pond FWA
