Thank you to all for you comments, they are appreciated very much. I understand that people in this neighborhood may be feeding them. This may be why this one was so calm around people and actually checking us out.

The hands on the ranch I used to work on called them Paisano (compatriot; good friend). My favorite bird. I don't like Roadrunner cartoons; their stupid.
