I love seeing these birds when I drive out away from town, but they're so hard to catch up with. You got a couple of really nice shots!

It really throws me off when they do their call....The can make it sound like it's coming from just 5 feet in front of me....but I have to look really hard and then notice it's like 30 yards away.
