1. I have no idea what kind of bird this is. Anyone have any ideas?
3. Same Roadrunner
I got it! It's a spotted towhee.
Wait a sec -- aren't roadrunners supposed to be purple and have a coyote chasing them?
I was going to identify the towhee for you, but was beaten to the punch.
I love the first image.
You might try a bit of a crop on your RR images removing some of the foreground and left side.
Nice. Looks like a good ID to me! I think the roadrunner kind of gets lost in the background (good camouflage, right?). I'll make a note to try and re-edit these along with many others from the Big Bend trip that could use a 2nd pass for improvements.
Really love the first pic - nice focus!
What kind of lens were you using for that?
Thanks. I believe all three were just with the Nikon 55-200 VR.
