These photographs were taken by Trail Camera on a dried pond bed near Lewisville Lake. The pictures show American Crows foraging and finding some kind of orange seed pod.
Wikipedia has this to say about American Crows:
The American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) is a large passerine bird species of the family Corvidae. It is a common bird found throughout much of North America. In the interior of the continent south of the Arctic, it is referred to as simply the “crow”.

Looks like a soapberry fruit
Well, I can’t say if that is a soap berry fruit or not from the picture, but you did inspire me to do a quick Google search. I found the berries in the photo below while on a hike several years ago. I have wondered what they were ever since. Now I know!
