Baby Beep-Beep~

We have a community of roadrunners living inside our fences at The Holler.

They have become quite used to us, and shelter in our garages or patio when it rains.

This baby roadrunner showed no fear when I approached, but I didn’t press it by getting too close. I would like to stay his friend!

You can see he still has some baby down on his back.

Cheers to you from The Holler’s fearless baby beep-beep~

Note: For those with enquiring minds regarding the tricky controversy over ‘beep vs meep,’ wiki clarifies that although commonly quoted as “meep meep”,Β the current owner of all trademarks lists “beep, beep” as the roadrunner’s main sound. πŸ˜‰

  1. They are such cool birds. I used to spend a lot of time camping in the desert out around Anzo Borrego and loved getting as close as I could. They are bright, inquisitive, and really fun to watch. Thanks for these great photos.

  2. Too precious for words, Cindy! That’s what we lose when fires break out. Everything loses. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you as well. I remember Calif fires. My last husband worked for Glendale fire. So I know. I’m glad the RR have you place to shelter. They know you are a good soul.

    • It is so amazing, when it rains we open the side doors to the garages, and they come in wet, fluffed-up and miserable, and ride out the rain inside where it is dry. I have never taken their photos doing this because I don’t want to frighten them. Lovely to hear from you Maiko & stay safe my friend დ

  3. That is so special, Cindy! Lucky you! We don’t have road runners up here on Vancouver Island, and don’t get to see them like you do, so it was a treat for me to see the closeup of the colour of their feathers. I had no idea they had such beautiful green feathers on their back and sides. Having only seen them at a distance when on holiday, or when I’ve seen them on TV, I thought they were a boring little brown bird. But they really are very pretty. Thanks for enlightening me.

  4. Cindy, these are absolutely gorgeous. A Roadrunners is my favorite bird in California, but I never seem to get a good look of them, because they seem so shy. I also had no idea they had bits of olive green in them; these shots expose every little detail, and I am just having a blast looking at these wonderful pictures . Thank you!

  5. I learnt something. Yes, I know, I’m a bit slow πŸ˜€ I did not realise that the famous road runner had that lovely metalic green on its back and the underbelly was a yellow. My image of the TV road runner has now been updated, it will never be the same πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸΌ πŸ¦‹
    Great shots dear lady…er, there’s no ‘coyote’ around with them is there? πŸ˜‚ 🀣

  6. They don’t look much like the one Wylie constantly tried to have for dinner, (loved that cartoon). Even as a kid, I wondered why he just didn’t by dinner with the money he spent at ACME, LOL! Their feathers make such a pretty pattern. I need to come back for a prolonged visit. I’m missing all the fun! xK

  7. How wonderful Cindy, I think this is the very first time I’ve seen these beautiful birds for real. And they are gorgeous. Wonderful captures Cindy, and so happy to have found your post the same time I’m browsing my reader this morning.
    Have a beautiful Sunday πŸ’šπŸ™
