Roadrunner

For most of the year the Roadrunner, a bird native to Texas and very common to the area, had eluded us completely. After repeated trips to the nearby state park, arriving early each time and driving slowly down the road, we finally saw that evasive little bird! It wasn’t ‘running’ though, it was just standing there on the side of the road…

That is until I grabbed for my camera. ‘BEEP-BEEP!’ – in a flash it was gone! The elusive Roadrunner had eluded us once again.

(note: Roadrunners don’t actually make the ‘beep-beep’ sound – but they are very fast.)
