Prior to my arrival in Albuquerque earlier this week to participate in the BeeSWeek 2013: Scientific and Community Panel Forums, I had no idea that the Rio Grande ran through New Mexico. I had only ever pictured it along the Texas border.

On the way to lunch I passed a sign for the Rio Grande Nature Center, and having heard that this was a great place to bird–and being my usual compulsively early self for lunch, I realized I had some time to spare so I happily followed the sign to the Rio Grande Nature Center.

I had been a little disappointed that there was hardly any native plants of New Mexico to be found at the Botanic Garden, so imagine my surprise to find a beautiful native plant garden lovingly tended by volunteers at this nature center!
