Mr. Roadrunner


What is that roadrunner doing on the patio table?  Looking for handouts of course.  And a few of the guests at the Desert Botanical Garden were obliging.


I sure hope those potato chips and bread crusts won't upset his tummy.  However, I think a bird whose main diet consists of lizards probably has a strong stomach.

Terrific photos of my "Beep beep" friend. Got to say he's pretty smart knowing right where the food is to be found!

A roadrunner with a taste for junk food.. Never mind he'll soon run that off:) Super clear captures Sharon.

He would probably rather have a lizard. Nice shots!

If he can handle lizards, he won't have problems with that, just as long as it doesn't become a habit. He looks quite distinctive.

I love these guys, Sharon! I'd eat the chips too. ;-)

I love roadrunners. I loved seeing them a lot when I used to live in Tucson and Alamogordo, NM.
