Meep-Meep Jr. is much shyer than Mama-Meep.
He likes playing me like Wile E.
Whenever I venture outside,
he vanishes, in a cloud of dust.
He forces me to shoot him through the double-paned, not too clean, windows.
Cheers to you from the very fast, quite shy, and oh-so-wiley, Meep-Meep-Junior~
What intriguing little creatures – great pics 😀
Very happy you enjoyed the speedy one & thanks!
Very cute! Meep Meep!
always such details…and their eyes…they are looking at you Cindy 🤓 smiles hedy ☺️💫
They always know where I am before I get there!!!!
What a handsome fellow! We don’t have road runners in Japan, so it’s a real treat to view them here 🙂 I loved the “meep meep” of the cartoon link <3
So happy I was able to introduce you to the speedy one and thank you!
wow how much bigger will he get?
I have a photo of him with mama. He is almost full grown. I would guess about 1/3 more growth max. He definitely is much more wary than his mama, who basically finds us very boring!
To judge by these amazing photos of your own personal roadrunner I conclude that your windows must be close to being spotless.
They are so unspotless it is pathetic….laughing! I should have cleaned them to take the photos, but window cleaning is not high on my list of loves of my life!
Stunning shots and I hate to say it, but your windows are cleaner than mine. No muddy paw prints anywhere.
I have no idea why the photos worked.There are cat and bird prints all over!!!
What a beauty! You got some excellent looks, and images from inside and through the window(s)!
Thank you! I was surprised too, especially considering that I haven’t quite gotten around to cleaning said windows!
How beautiful…and what fun! Meep, meep. Love it. Wonderful photographs of a gorgeous bird.
Thanks love & now I know how Wile E. feels!
Aww, you have a road runner!!! Love to see those guys.
Yp, they are incredibly fun birds to have around!
I love the roadrunners! So cute and such great photos – your windows seem fine to me. 🙂
The windows need work, but there is so much more I would rather do! Like chasing the beeping one……
Fantastic shots Cindy! My window always looks cleaner in photos than reality too! 😉 What kind of camera do you use? The quality of your photographs is incredible!
These photos were taken with the Sony HX400. I think it is very nice of our cameras to ignore our dirty windows!
It is indeed! Those pictures are just great!
So pretty indeed!
De rien mon amie…♡
A cartoon character in real life. I love the name, the special photos through a window, and your clever post.
You are a lovely friend Dor. <3
Oh my goodness, Cindy. Catching any photo of the elusive roadrunner is incredible. All my years living in the desert, I barely caught a glimpse of one. You have phenomenal shots there even through a window. My son’s nickname as a child was roadrunner and that’s his ringtone on my phone. 🙂 Love roadrunners and Wylie Coyote. 🙂 Thanks for sending a smile.
They certainly like to watch us when they think we aren’t looking, but when we are looking, watch out, they are gone before you can reach for your camera. I now know just how Wile E. felt!
I have never seen a road runner! What a fascinating beauty! Meep meep!!
It looks like Mama has made a fine job of bringing up a robust roadrunner. And, meh, to cleaning windows. Plus the spottier they are the less likely birds and little critters will fly into them.
Excellent point. I now will never wash the windows (not that I ever really did), because it is kinder to birdies if I don’t. I need you in my life Mandy. This is the best reason ever!!! 😉
Absolutely the best reason, Cindy. “Non- window washer” can now be added to your already wonderful list of environmental credentials. 😀
Happy to have seen your roadrunners – gracefully fast bird! Meep, Meep! Beautiful shots Cindy clean glass or not, would have never known – your images were perfectly clear.
So kind Mary & much appreciated too! Have a wonderful day~
Magnificent bird! The window shots are good. You made the most of what you could get.
“You made the most of what you could get.”
This sounds like a good recipe for life in general. Thank you Darnell.
They’re still great shots, even through glass.
Merci beaucoup mon ami <3
Cindy, you just keep out-doing yourself. They are magnificent. <3 xx
You are a lovely friend. Be well Lea <3
Wow. I’ve never seen an actual roadrunner. The colors are wonderful.
I am so pleased I could introduce you to the speedy one & cheers to you Marie <3
So that’s what a road runner looks like. Gorgeous.
I am so very pleased you enjoyed him & I am sure he agrees with your assessment of him! 😉
What unbelievably amazing shots! If I didn’t know you always take these incredible pictures, I would think you’re an alien! 😀
Awwww…… so kind & much appreciated! 👽👽
Wonderful captures Cindy, they are such sweet looking birds 🙂💖 xxx
Thank you. I love their eyeshadow!
FANTASTIC, THE COLOURS ARE ACE, CHINA
Very happy you think so & thank you!
Cracking photos! Now I have Bo Diddley “Road Runner” in my head.
Thanks much & how wonderful! I wonder how long Bo will stick there.
liebe Cindy, herrlich wieder deine Bilder, lass es dir heute gut gehen und passe auf dich auf.
Vielen danke mein lieber Freund <3

Photos of Meep-Meep Jr. from Cindy Knoke.
Hugs to you & happy Wednesday <3
Great Photos Cindy, I love our feathered friends.
Thanks much & we concur on the feathered folks.
Always my pleasure ☺️ 💛
Cindy, I would have never known you were shooting through a window. The clarity is wonderful. It was so fun to watch roadrunners when I lived in New Mexico. They’re such characters. Hugs on the wing… or the run.
They are highly entertaining birds aren’t they, and not only on TV! Have an awesome week Teagan.
Wonderful captures of a fast runner! 🙂
Merci beaucoup mon ami <3
Cindy you never cease to amaze me with your fantastic photos and these live on your property too?! You have quite a sanctuary going!
I am so happy you enjoyed the speedy one & birdies make the best neighbors!
Gorgeous images of little Wille Jr! I enjoy watching roadrunners when I get the rare chance. Thanks for sharing yours.
Thank you more for you always thoughtful appreciation Brad & cheers to you~
What a character Cindy, you can see he has attitude.
He certainly does have that ‘tude! 😉
Fantastic sight you have from your window!
He is pretty hilarious and quite self possessed!
Beautiful pictures. I love the detail in the close-ups.
The red and blue by the eyes is quite a dramatic touch isn’t it!
Lovely birds, Cindy, thanks for posting them. 🙂
Thank you more for your kind appreciation Ranu <3
They are ridiculously awesome critters <3
Aw, he’s just so cute! And trust me, your windows don’t look awful at all!!
Thankfully, the camera didn’t focus on the windows!! Have a happy hump-day Debbie <3
Grazie Mille Derrick!
Great shots, even through glass, Cindy. I love watching this duo! Meep-meep!
Happy Thursday Eliza & cheers to you! <3
So lovely. I haven’t seen our roadrunners since Hurricane Harvey. 🙁
Oh how sad! You much miss them. <3
Handsome real life RR. I always think they should have a much longer legs to run as fast as in the cartoon version. Great shots!
They certainly can move lightening fast. They remind me of pterodactyls!
That is a bit too scary in addition.
Well, Great Herons are a lot bigger and a lot more pterdactylish. I make a point not to make any bird unnecessarily grumpy at me, and it all works out well <3
And so comical to watch. They are members of the cuckoo family.
So pleased you enjoyed them & cheers!
You have an wonderful way of capturing our winged friends. Lovely, Cindy. It brings the roadrunner into a new perspective for me. Thanks for making my day beautiful.
Your comments always make my <3 smile Rebecca~
Cindy, awesome pictures. We don’t have these birds here locally so it was so cool to view birds like these. I like you, have been forced to shoot through glass and I like you have window cleaning far and I mean far down my list of to-do’s. Some of these feathered friends just don’t like any of us to get too close. 😘
They don’t like us to get too close, and I am grateful my camera forgives my lack of window diligence. Happy you enjoyed these goofy guys and cheers to you~
Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! A big human meep hello from Canada. Beautiful little creature!
He thinks you have excellent taste Resa, and so do I!!! 😉 <3
What a beauty…I’ve never seen a road runner before let alone a Meep-Meep-Junior!
I am so happy to introduce you! The roadrunner cannot imagine a place without him in it! 😉
One of my favorites, nice captures!
Thank you. I know why they are a favorite, they are hilarious!
Oh how I loved that cartoon! But the real thing is much more interesting.
Laughing….He has a mohawk he lifts up and down in accordance with his highly variable emotions! 😉
So if it’s up, there must be a coyote round! 🤣
He does puff up around predators he wants to attack like snakes, with coyotes he is just gone like greased lightning!
That’s awesome. 🙂
These photographs are wonderful!
Ahhhh, you are a wonderful friend Charles.

I have been saving this up today to close of play …. what a cutie.. I want to bring him home. Thanks to Cindy Knoke for taking such amazing photos even through a window.. amazing.
I can almost imagine a roadrunner in Ireland! Laughing……Hugs to you sweet Sally <3
It would cause a stir for sure… thank goodness the driving is a lot better than it used to be and we do love something a bit quirky… hugs ♥
He has quirky covered. I guess I can’t smuggles him in my suitcase….
I am afraid not…hugsxx
Love these guys Cindy!! They look so bright and alert the way you captured them! And the details of those feathers!! Amazing. thanks for continuing to come up with such beautiful creatures… xo
All creatures wise and wonderful. Thank you for appreciating them sweet lady <3
Would never have guessed that such clear shots were taken thru double-paned windows that were not washed a few minutes ago!
You would think, I would be motivated to clean the windows, but thankfully, my camera makes this drastic step unnecessary. 😉
And that is a road runner! Thank you, Cindy. Not only have you posted a bird I’ve always wanted to see (road runner cartoon lover, here), you have posted a remarkable photo. Well, you always post remarkable photos. 🙂
Awww. I love blogging because I love my blogging friends. Hugs to you <3
That’s so nice, Cindy. The feeling is mutual. 😍
So that’s what a Road-runner looks like (from the cartoon character of our youth).
Lovely shots, Cindy. Looks like he/she is very close to the windows which makes of some great photo opportunities.
So very happy to introduce you! He was just here a few minutes ago, staring intently at me.
Beep Beep! <3
Amazing images! Thank youuu! Never seen a baby roadrunner before. Have a great weekend ahead. Michael
Very happy you enjoyed & happy weekend to you too!
Thank you! Never thought that roadrunners are so funny. 😉 Michael
They are hilarious and highly entertaining! <3
Crazy looking birds
Crazy acting birds too!
I’m a road runner honey,

“But you can’t beat me…..” Love it!
What wonderful photographs — with enough resolution to see feather patterns in all their glory! Thank you for taking and sharing them.
Thank you much more for such a thoughtful comment & cheers to you~
Absolutely wonderful photos of your visitors, Cindy. Your windows are very clean indeed! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend,
The Fab Four of Cley Xx Xx
You too my friend. I imagine you will be out and about, enjoying the sunshine <3
We are just picking up all the windfallen apples that our gardener can cut the grass
and then we will sit in our deckchairs reading.
It sounds like paradise. I am heading your way, and further north, but on a tight schedule with no wiggle room, due to the impending birth of Dre’s twins. I look forward to being in your beautiful part of the world, but wish I could stop by and say hello <3
What a pity! Maybe another time?
All the best for the birth of Dre’s twins.
The Fab Four of Cley
Thanks my friend. And definitely the next time.
Wowww, are those what real roadrunners look like? One wouldn’t even believe they were taken through a window! 🙂 <3
These are the real deal. They tend to avoid you when you want to take their photo, but watch you intently when you are not looking!
Wild animals are smarter than us and they don’t have to buy stuff. They can just take it! 😉
Lol, and not get arrested for doing so. 🙂
Looks like an insect eater, helping to clean the yard? – Oscar
Insect, lizards, snakes, birds. They eat anything with meat on it!
I think you will need some Acme-branded products to befriend Meep Meep Jr. haha.
Lovely pictures of a sweet little roadrunner, Cindy!
Laughing. He would just blow me up with it! 😉
Thank you & happy you enjoyed him!
wow, wow and wow
Those are such encouraging words! Thank you & cheers~
Great images, Cindy. Stunning colors and feathering. Love that little Meep-Meep.
I am so glad that you do & thank you <3
Always loved the roadrunner, nice to see a real one! 🙂
So very pleased to make the introduction <3
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of a real road runner. Adorable, Cindy. Thanks!
Ahhhh, makes me so happy I posted <3
Every visit to your blog is rewarded with eye popping beauty, Cindy.
Awww. You are a joy to know my friend <3
They are beautiful. What type of birds are they?
They are roadrunners. Have an awesome week Suzanne <3
OMG!!!! It’s real!?! I grew up with the Roadrunner but assumed it was just a myth. I wish my photos turned out as well as your dirty-window ones. 🙂
Awwww, so kind and so appreciated and very happy to introduce you to the speedy one!
-grin- Meep meep!
Amazing shots and cute names!
Muchas gracias mi amiga amable <3
I’ve always rooted for Road Runner to outrun Wile E. Coyote. His speed is most impressive. 😀
My older son had to do a project on desert animals, and he’s been obsessed with road runners ever since!
I love your son, and you!
Of course, I rooted for Meep-Meep, over Wile E, because W.E. wished to kill Meep X 2. So the creature avoiding the killer, was a slam dump for me, and your son, and you, which is why you both rock.
(I still confess to liking Wile E. I think he can be redeemed, with therapy and a different environment).
How beautiful are those!!!!Gorgeous.
I agree with you & thank you too <3
I used to enjoy watching Road runner show along with my son, I never knew he looks so cute, thanks for bringing him alive in front of me. 🙂 Your window shots are so very clear to me, liked all these beautiful captures.
Such a lovely comment! Thank you. You make me glad I posted.
These are glorious photos! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you more for your kind appreciation!
I have ALWAYS wanted to see one up close – THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! xoxoxoxox
