    Meg Read your article from your journal in the journal. I worked in the North unit for 15 years. you circled the best habitat for the Mtn Plover. I have seen them in the areas you covered but not so common. To get to the most concentrated habitat cross the John Dunn bridge and head north on the dirt road between Pot and Chiflo. The area where I almost always observed them starts about .5 mi north of Pot continues North for about 5 miles and also west for several miles. Granted, I have not been out there since the severe drought. Don’t know effects of that. Good Luck.

    Hi, Meg – this morning I read an article you wrote several years ago about your experience with Hawk Watch International in the Manzano Mountains. I live in New Mexico, a bit northeast of Santa Fe. Yours was a wonderfully inspiring piece. I’m just coming to my own love and passion for hawks. Because of your article, I’m strongly motivated to connect with HWI and volunteer with them next year. In fact, I can’t wait! Thank you very much.

      Thanks for the kind words, Ellen. I hope you get a chance to volunteer on the Manzano Hawk Watch. HWI are truly dedicated people. THEY are the inspiring ones! -Meg
