Sandhills at the Bosque

Sandhills at the Bosque

Slumbering Sandhill cranes standing in icy water before dawn at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, near Socorro, New Mexico. Notice that the surface of the pond has frozen around the legs of the cranes and that each crane is standing on only one leg - all to conserve heat.
