Sandhill Cranes Headed North Along the Rio in Numbers

Posted on February 26, 2013 at 10:59am 0 Comments

From the South Valley near the Valencia-Bernalillo County Line, the sandhill cranes are flying north toward Albuquerque and beyond at elevations so high you can hardly see them with your naked eye. You can heard them clearly, however. The migration started at least three weeks ago, but this (Feb. 26) seems to be a peak day. None of the birds are flying just above the rooftops as they sometimes do. 

Read Seinfeld Producer and UNM Grad Tom Cherones' New Hardly Boys Book

            BOSQUE DEL APACHE NWR -- Maybe the corn isn't as high as an elephant (sigh!) this November, but the sandhill cranes are at least eyeball to corn ear with 260 acres of cob salad as the 16th annual Festival of the Cranes gets underway.

            Not that the cranes would be caught dead in a standing cornfield. They like their corn "bumped" as the refuge staff calls it -- knocked to the ground, the better to see the wily coyote that lurks in the…


Forty-Seventh Star (that's Us) New David Holtby Book Just Out

Posted on October 8, 2012 at 2:30pm 10 Comments

Thanks to whoever posted the schedule on Duke City Fix of David V. Holtby’s new book signings, because I wouldn't have known it was on bookshelves otherwise. I picked it up a few days ago at Holtby's signing at the UNM Bookstore.It's title is  Forty-Seventh Star: New Mexico’s Struggle for Statehood, University of Oklahoma Press, and I found it to be just what I needed to understand that long struggle to achieve statehood. 

Most New Mexicans with an interest in the state pretty…
