Each winter, thousands of sandhill cranes, as well as geese, ducks and other migratory birds gather at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro, New Mexico to take advantage of the well-maintained wetlands. Cranes packed into close quarters will often peck or bite each other when they think their neighbor is getting too close for comfort. This particular crane was a little tired of all that togetherness.
