You are quick with that camera. I like those things. Lotta folks think they're hell on quail eggs, but I think I remember TPWD saying coons, armadillos, and skunks are the real culprits.

Didn't need to be quick just had to move slow, he stayed there for about 2 minutes while the motor was running, door was open and radio playing. It wasn't until I tried to get around the window that he flew off. I wish I hadn't been pointing East.

They're voracious hunters. Regularly kill and eat rattlesnakes. Roadrunner vs Rattlesnake

Not sure where he learned to do that, this spot is 5 miles to the closest road, I think it was his reflection that got him curious.

That's cool! We spent a summer at the ranch back in 82 cutting Russian thistles. We'd frequently see a pair, and within about 100-150 yds, a third. Never could figure out if it was the jilted lover or the MIL. I think somebody that kept one as a pet wrote a book long years ago about it.

A couple of seasons back I had that same thing happen. I just sat there for a few minutes until he decided to leave. I thought I was special, guess not!
