I am in north central New Mexico at El Vado Lake State Park. During the week there were just 4 or 5 fellow campers, but over the weekend more arrived. The park is at 6,900 feet elevation next to a reservoir (“lake”). Have been pleased to have had a good internet connection while here. There are just villages nearby, no large towns, but they did a good job of stringing telephone lines out here.
Above is a yellow-bellied sapsucker. At times there were 3 or 4 of them in this one tree. Often they were checking in previously drilled holes, not drilling new ones. They have a unique song that helped me identify them.
The most abundant bird here, by far, are the bluebirds. They are mainly western bluebirds, but there seem to be some mountain bluebirds as well. Think the bottom picture is a juvenile bluebird.
Above, a flycatcher of some kind.
Below, some Canada geese, and their reflections, fly across the lake.
