Pancho Villa State Park New Mexico

Feb 24 2014
Today I drove to Pancho Villa State Park in New Mexico. I visited here in 2012 with a couple of friends of mine. My friends are avid birders and they pointed out several parks between here and the southern tip of Texas. These parks are truly a birders paradise.
This park also has a great museum that explains the story of Pancho Villa and some of his followers that raided this little town of Columbus NM and the US Army fort that was located here.
