Everybody loves the Roadrunner, right?

Beep, Beep!

I have never seen a pair of Roadrunners. At some point, one would think, we would see a pair. Always searching for insects, lizards and snakes, and seemingly always running. I was lucky to see a few of them running around this lovely state park. Occasionally, a brief pause. And, I mean brief!

One evening, Howard and I were walking in the park and spotted this Roadrunner sitting in a tree. I have seen them (briefly) sitting on a fence post, but never in a tree. I wonder if he thought he was hiding from us.

Happy Birding!
