New Mexico - A Birder's Paradise?  Presented by Dwayne Longenbaugh Many of us enjoy the numerous and varied bird species we might see on our local outings, but have you ever thought much about what might have created the conditions which attract so many birds? We all use the normal everyday terms of habitat, climate etc., but in this presentation we will look at geology, paleogeology, biology, and perhaps some other -ologies to see and explore the many things that have brought us to the point where we have the 4th highest State species count in the U.S.
