Yesterday i discovered two road runners in my backyard..
The coyote can't be far behind. MEEP MEEP!
Hmmm.....You never hear about road runners. Are they birds? Are they like chickens?
desert_cat_ca: It's hard to think of road runners as real birds, but finding two in your backyard is wonderful!
From the National Geographic channel: video: Roadrunner vs. Rattlesnake

I saw these quite frequently when I lived in western Louisiana for a little while. (I know you're asking- who the heck lives in western Louisiana and why. It was military-related.) Anyway, they really do dart across the road. Although back when I would see them I wasn't keeping track of bird species yet. Suppose I could retroactively add it to my life list.
Thanks for those links Claire.
