Road-runner, Cindy knoke is after you!
Road-runner, this is the best that she’s caught you.
Some of you were interested in more road-runner shots. Yesterday he decided to cooperate, in a road-runner sort of fashion…..I had the best time being toyed with by him as I chased after him to catch these shots. His game is to run, pause with a clear shot for a second, and then hide in Camouflage. Repeat process.
He clearly had a fine time, running me around like a fool. Just call me Wiley C. Here is a sequence, one shot after another.
Road-runners have territories that they patrol and fight to defend. They are immensely curious birds and like to watch what we are doing, especially when we are unaware. Truth be told, they are downright nosey. They make an odd whirring noise when they patrol. It is created by clacking their beak rapidly together He here is a sample (it is not as loud or clear as the real noise):
Road-runners like to eat rattlesnakes, which is another reason I like them. They grab the snake by the tail and bash it’s head on a rock and swallow. I have seen them running with half a snake hanging out of their beak.
Like herons, road-runners look and act as I imagine certain dinosaurs would. Birds are said to be similar to dinosaurs in many ways. Here he is, in the final shot, doing what he does best!
Cheers from Road-runner Holler!
