Rio Grande in January

It is very peaceful along the Rio Grande in Albuquerque on a beautiful clear day in January. Hundreds of Canada geese are slowly awakening after a cold night. These beautiful -- and sometimes annoying -- birds winter at the Paseo del Bosque in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They spend the night (standing on one leg) at the river, then fly off to forage in nearby fields.
