"R" is for...ABC Wednesday 111809

roadrunner! We have lots of roadrunners here in our desert southwest. Why, we even have a family in our neighborhood! They have been here for many years, ever since our own kids were growing up! The father sometimes lands on my front fence and surveys the street. I often see one of them running up or down our street with something in its mouth~a lizard, an insect, and yes, even a small bird or a baby bird. Our neighbor told us that he saw one of the roadrunners even chase our petite cat, Daisy, down the street! ABC Wednesday for November 18, 2009.

I hadn't thought about road runners in a long time -- don't think I've ever seen one for real, but my kids were always into the road runner cartoons -- way back then! They do look busy! Great shots for the day!

So that's what they look like when they're not a cartoon! Strange-looking bird.

On behalf of the Team, thanks for your post.

I saw my first roadrunner when we visited Red Rock Canyon. What a fascinating bird. Thanks for the pictures and memories.

I saw one of those birds for the first time on our holiday! I knew instantly what it was.

But good grief! I had no idea they ate other birds or that they would chase a cat! Aggressive little things, huh?
