A few New Mexico birds

Roadrunners are the New Mexico state bird, and they probably should be Albuquerque's official bird as well. They have adapted well to the Duke City's sprawl, and can often be seen in peoples' yards (including my own).

 

I won't have many bird pictures to share, because I manage a few snapshots during chance encounters. As of July 2020 I began reorganizing my bird pictures along taxonomic lines. Eventually you'll be able to search all my bird pictures that way, using this page. On the page current, birds are grouped by general categories that non-biologists use. To visit a page, click on the thumbnail or the link. If you hover your cursor over the slide shows that appear, you'll see controls for the images.

 

You many notice many urban bird photos from the spring of 2020. That's because during the Covid-19 pandemic, I was mostly at home and my main form of exercise was walking around the neighborhood.

 

Birders, please feel free to correct my identifications, via the "Contact" tab at the top of each page.
