Roadrunner on Deck

While I was out last week, Hydra watched this roadrunner do something really surprising.  It ate a sparrow!

We knew that it eats lizards, but apparently it has a taste for smaller birds, too.  He watched as it pecked at the sparrow carcass and then swallowed the thing whole.   By the time Hydra got the camera, the drama had pretty much played out, but that’s a satisfied roadrunner you’re looking at.

Hopefully, Hydra will comment with a thrilling play by play!

    No play by play please, the mind does its own play by play.

    It needs to keep its energy up so it can stay ahead of the Coyote.

    I actually saw a coyote tailing a road runner along the edge of our property when we first moved out to Acton… I got up and distracted the coyote!
