    This is the closest I've been able to get to a roadrunner. Look at the colors on his/her face. So beautiful!

    One bird I never have had the pleasure of seeing. Neat picture of it. Good catch.[​IMG]

    I seen several in south Texas back in 1991 on a hunt on this big ranch. I soon learned why they are called road runners.

    Neat. We've got a few around here but you don't see them that often.

    I've seen and been near quite a few. Be wary of it around any chicks or small birds as they do eat small birds including hummingbirds. They are extremely fast!

    That's nice. I'm a little bit of a bird fanatic myself, never heard of that one [​IMG]

    Beautiful bird!

    Used to live in a place that had Roadrunners but sadly never saw one myself.
