sunday morning my grand daughter and I noticed a small bird with brown wings,and two black rings around the neck,white or lightcolor breast just sitting in front of my car in the rocks for about half an hour staring in the direction of my car,moving his head only slightly,no matter if other birds or cars passed.the unusual thing to me was the wide black bands around the neck and the bird sat as if nesting in the rocks.
