New Mexico Christmas and New Years

Land of enchantment, History, Wildlife, Great Scenes and spectacular light.

December 27th -January 2rd

This trip is truly more than birds but birds are part of the experience of winter in New Mexico.

Dec 27th

We will begin by picking you up at Albuquerque's airport. by 5 pm. From there we will proceed to the historical and scenic State Capitol of Santa Fe. At this time of the year Santa Fe will be decorated with it old world Spanish splendor. The glamour and history of Santa Fe are great but the addition of Christmas decorations are the icing that puts this beginning to our journey over the top.
