They are wonderful...(how I loved those Cartoons...).I would love a Road Runner, but I think my little cat would be scared stiff.

Cracking shot, Pam, and I bet your timing had to be impeccable for they can shift a gear or two..just love that hair, and that tail! It looks so good & (I have to say) so funny...

Actually they are bullies ! He had recently been terrorising the doves and pigeons !
4 years ago.
slgwv has replied to Pam J
They are opportunistic predators and, like ravens, will prey on other birds' eggs and nestlings. They will also prey on rattlesnakes and tarantulas! Per Wikipedia they're a ground-dwelling cuckoo.
Btw, another name for these birds that I heard more as a kid is "chaparral." Thank Chuck Jones' cartoons for making "roadrunner" standard!

Can I persuade him to eat Copperheads do you think !!!!!

I could get to like the bird who eats those.. AND the furry spiders !!!!

Not really getting the reference's...maybe I should watch more telly? The poor critter looks scared out of it's wits. I reckon you did rather well to get such a crisp shot of something that didn't want to be there in the first place. Nice one!

Pam J has replied to Phill G
Phil..

I take it you never watched Wiley Coyote on the cartoons ever then. Its been on for years. I can vouch for it in the UK as I am English and nearly 60 and saw it as a kid.

The Road Runner always went "Meep meep " before it ran the coyote and all other things over with its speed.

Your totally incorrect assumption it is scared it so far from the truth. THAT is their normal expression. It has also recently been terrorising the doves and pigeons

Hi Pam,

I stand corrected! Sounds like a bully!
For various reasons, I never saw those cartoons, and had never heard of WC. I'd heard of RR, and knew it was a bird...just! ;-)
