No, not the cat.
It's the shadowy image behind him and the sage.
Aha! He's nearly out from behind his cover.
Still keeping a wary eye on me, shooting through the window.
But I suspect he sees me.
And then . . .
. . . the full profile.
Just after that photo, he hopped through the gate and went on his way.
I saw him, or another member of his family, later when I went out for a walk.
In case you didn't know, that's the Arizona Roadrunner.
And contrary to some opinions, it's NOT the State Bird of Arizona.
That's the Cactus Wren.
It is, however, the State Bird of neighboring New Mexico.
And for all of you cartoon watchers, I'm not sure where Wile E. Coyote is right now.
Probably shopping at the Acme Corporation.
