[Tweeters] In praise of New Mexico

I wasn't born or raised in New Mexico, nor do I own a cabin there, but I
heartily affirm Mason Flint's paean to that state.

In April 2014, we had a wonderful five-day birding trip to New Mexico,
starting with Camp Washington Ranch and Rattlesnake Springs in the
Carlsbad Area in the south.

We moved north to areas east of Roswell (Bitter Lake NWR and Mescalero
Sands National Recreation Area, where we saw Lesser Prairie Chicken).

We birded our way west across the mountains (looking for Zone-tailed
Hawk and Pinyon Jay) on US380 and then visited the fabulous Bosque del
Apache NWR.

We saw Red-faced Warbler in Water Canyon of the Cibola National Forest.

We saw Grace's Warbler, Broad-tailed Hummingbird and many others in a
lovely walk in Frijoles Canyon in Bandelier National Mounument.

New Mexico rocks!
