Piedras Marcadas Canyon Petroglyphs

Cross between a bird and an antelope?

This one especially intrigues me. The lower figure looks like a dragonfly and the upper a bird. However,
there is an "action" line connecting them. I know from my yard that it is not unusual for hummingbirds to chase
larger birds, so maybe that is the intention of this depiction.

Hand glyphs are rare at the other locations in Petroglyph NM, but seem to be fairly common at Piedras Marcadas.
