Route From the parking lot, scanned the pond to the NE, then walked a loop that goes to the riverbank and back.
With Gary Parker, who was kind enough to show me his preferred routes.
Goose, Canada x Goose, Snow ? @Albuquerque: Rio Grande Nature Center
Description: Strange-looking goose with a white head superimposed on a Canada-like body. Size a bit smaller than regular Canadas. Bill rather short. I'll leave the ID of this one to the experts; Gary Parker tells me several of them have been pondering this odd bird. The ID here is just my guess.

@Mid: San Antonio: Midway area
"Midway" refers to the area roughly halfway between San Antonio and Luis Lopez. Just north of milepost 55 on NM-1, on the east side of the highway, is a field that has been pretty much a temporary pond since the wet summer. This spot has often been better shorebird habitat this fall than the Bosque Refuge.
