Mother Roadrunner June 28, 2008

Posted by Ron Warnick in Animals.

I’ve seen roadrunners in Oklahoma, where I live, but only as a blur as they zip by at incredible speed.

This videographer got good footage of two of them, on old Route 66 between Oatman, Ariz., and Kingman:

I got my camera to take a video, and when I tried to slowly approach the bird it suddenly ran toward me. It was hard to video because it kept approaching so close. It must have been used to handouts from passing motorists.

Animals that get used to handouts from humans often are susceptible to predators. But these birds can easily outrun anything with sinister intentions.
