One more photo of a Sandhill at Bosque in evening light. We saw this every evening. In years past we saw them in corn fields. Since corn requires a lot of water, a wheat product, Triticale, has been planted more than corn. The drought affects Bosque like it does the rest of us. From a Bosque website: Triticale needs to be only flash irrigated two to four times per year, and these irrigations can be easily met by groundwater wells, removing the reliance on irrigation tail-water deliveries.
