Although this is apparently a common bird in our area, this is the first time I’ve seen one. While I was walking today, I saw this bird run across the walking path quite a distance ahead of me. At first I thought it was a chipmunk because of the way it ran. I was quite a distance away and my 300mm lens didn’t help much. This photo is cropped quite a bit and the quality of the photo is poor, but I don’t know if I’ll see one again anytime soon because they are quite elusive and hide in the bushes.
