      But I have no experience with road runners. Great pic, by the way.

        I take that as high praise coming from you @nvwino

        Yeah he/she seems really young. Feathers were a total mess when we first met, but now the bird seems a whole lot healthier. Feed it almost every day. Doesn’t like snow so those days are missed. Like today. Having a wild winter day today, 40 mph winds and snow.

        Pic was taken while about 20 feet away.

        Stupid bird gets less than 3 feet away most of the time. Fearless little shit.

        I watched a pair (mom and dad) take on a rattler about 25 feet from where I was sitting.

        The skulking and dancing are amazing. Then they hit the poor thing a bunch of times and fairly soon one of the runners just ate it.

        Swallowed it head first, very slowly. Actually ran off with the fucking snake hanging outta its mouth, no less.

      Usually by tricking them to run off cliffs!

      Acme Corporation anvils, rockets, or explosives are also frequently employed.
