We have a roadrunner! I think it’s a Greater Roadrunner. I’ll do my best to get a better picture of it but for a week or so, Vince and I would see something and say “I think I saw a roadrunner” but he was quick and we never got a good view of it. Over the past few weeks, it has gotten to where it isn’t nearly so afraid of us. We certainly can’t get close to it but I see it several times each day. In fact, it scares the heck out of me several times a day!
Yesterday I opened the back door and it must have been real near the porch because it ran right in front of me. I went back in the house and got the camera and it’s hard to see it but it’s under the tree.
It almost always runs to the same spot in the woods so I’m wondering if there’s a nest over there.
I think he’s trying to fix his hair like Vince fixes his! 🙂
The neighbor told me she’s seen them in their backyard eating grasshoppers. Yay! They are so funny to watch . . roadrunners, not grasshoppers!
Speaking of grasshoppers . . do you know what I’ve resorted to doing?
Yes the girly girl who always had shoes, earrings and other accessories to match every outfit; who always had perfectly manicured nails . . is now squishing grasshoppers with her bare hands! Yesterday I set a record . . 27 grasshoppers squished from one apricot tree. The one I’m holding in the photo is a small one .. some are 2 or 3″ long . . really! They are about to drive me nuts. I wish we had more roadrunners!
