Valle del Oro National Wildlife Refuge, Albuquerque

Located south of downtown, this wildlife refuge is one of Albuquerque’s newest open spaces. If you want to photograph the migrating birds, this is a wonderful alternative to going all the way to Bosque del Apache or the Ladd S. Gordon Waterfowl Complex near Bernardo, as this is right within city limits.
