I buy a membership to the New Mexico Biopark every year. The Rio Grande Zoo, the Aquarium, the Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach are four facilities located next to the Rio Grande and connected by a train. In the past couple of weeks I have birded at the zoo.
There are fun sculptures at the zoo entrance.
There are exotic birds, ones not native to New Mexico.
Peafowl wander freely throughout the zoo.
Because the zoo is right next to the Rio Grande, there are native resident and migrating birds there as well.
I do believe it, I do believe it’s true. . .
