Mrs. Bailey's Chickadee

North Central New Mexico Birding

A detailed web site, North Central NM Birding Guide , has been developed that describes birding in north central New Mexico. It includes directions and expected species for birding spots in or near the Rio Grande Valley, ranging from Santa Fe in the south to Taos in the north. The site contains information and internet links that should be of value to all birding enthusiasts.

The National Audubon Society has a Policy Issues and Action page on its web site that is designed to educate and inform members, citizens, lawmakers and other policy representatives on conservation issues. The “Take Action” site describes these issues and offers the opportunity for readers to get their concerns voiced. Click on the “Take Action” logo to learn about the latest issues and to send in your opinion. 


Mrs. Bailey's Chickadee

The Chapter has named its newsletter after the Mountain Chickadee. Get a brief history of this bird and why it might well be called Mrs. Bailey's Chickadee.
