Good idea for a group! I gotta say, roadrunners are some of the smartest birds I've ever seen in my life. I've actually seen them wait for cars to pass before crossing the road. That's gotta be pretty smart for a bird (heck, I think we can say they're smarter than dogs there).

This guy decided to give me a visit today, and even cooperated enough for me to take some photos of him.

Hi everyone, I'm knew to Duke City Fix. I think Roadrunners are the coolest birds ever! Here's one that makes it's rounds through my yard every now and then.

My friend I work with came in to telling me a story yesterday. He and his wife were sitting on their back patio having dinner. A Roadrunner came sneaking up in their back yard, jumped up on their block wall. Ran along the top of the wall and then flew up into a tree and snatched a little yellow finch (or something like it) out of the tree. My friend's wife went into shock...they'd never seen anything like it. She jumped up hoping to get the Roadrunner to drop it's prey but the Road Runner made its great escape. I'm not sure my friend's wife was able to finish her chicken dinner. I laughed my @$$ off when my friend told me the story. We spent about an hour looking them up on the internet to see what else the eat. Roadrunners are so cool!

Who knew they were rock climbers too?

I happened upon this fabulous bird while walking on the Sandia bike-trail. Then I turned around to see another lurking closeby. Perhaps they're mates?

Think it was early October this year late afternoon I turned into my yard and there was Roadrunner on the 6 ft high fence next to the big cholla, with the dried-out baby bird in its beak. Think it was the same baby bird I'd placed back in its nest after it had fallen out a month or so before. What a relief it always is to see these Wild Things get a meal in this Human-altered environment.
