You might be wondering what is so special about this photo. Well the only reason I've posted this photo is to show you that dark spot near the center. See it? It's a roadrunner nest.
Inside the nest were three young roadrunners who have not yet left the nest. I happened upon these babies after I followed the trail of an adult roadrunner who ran past me with a lizard in it's mouth. I followed to see if I could get his photo but he was too quick for me. However, he led me to this nest where these three were waiting for a special treat.
Here is one more view. You can see the one in front clearly and right over his head is the beak of another one and then way in the back you can see the full head and neck of the third one. It was a special treat for me to see these beauties. They are getting pretty big so it won't be long before they are out foraging on their own.
