Approximately 24 inches long. Note the blue & red streak behind the eye.

A ground bird for the most part. Seems to want to run rather fly, but it can fly and very well. Eats Lizards, eggs of other birds, baby birds, spiders, insects, & snakes including the Rattlesnake. This bird can run as fast as 15 miles per hour. Very territorial.

I have used photos from two different nests.

"I see you looking out of your car window with that great
big camera lens pointed at me." He says.
