We visited the Bitter Lake Wildlife Refuge to check it out for Dave and Nancy who are going to be volunteering here next year. We really liked looking at all the birds but I'm not sure I could be a bird counter. They move around too much.
Bitter Lake Refuge is located about 7 miles from Roswell. It’s not a large refuge but it offers a very unique environment for many species of wildlife. It is located on the Pecos River.
The Refuge provides habitat for thousands of migrating lesser sandhill cranes, Ross and snow geese and about twenty duck species such as pintails, mallards, canvasback, gadwall, shovelers and three species of teal.
