Beep-Beep

We went to Albuquerque yesterday to pick up some new product for our gift shops and we got done a couple of hours earlier than expected so headed or towards the river to the Rio Grand Nature Center. I wanted to try and get some more Wood Ducks for my collection. While on one of the trails I found a couple of roadrunners so the hunt was on. This is the 2nd time I tried a crow call on roadrunners and the same result both times, yet many miles apart. They stop and even come in closer.

Great captures Roger. I especially like the ones where you got him to stop and he raised his crest, classic. Super work.

Thanks Steve, it was the crow call doing its thing that got him to stop.
