Capturing The Moment — The Desert’s Joker Playing Hide ‘n Seek   4 comments

A Roadrunner in the desert brush. — Image by kenne

Greater Roadrunner

A roadrunner doesn’t go “meep meep”, for he says “cucucucuckoo”

He isn’t an ostrich or an emu, he is a cuckoo.

Even his scientific name means “Californian ground cuckoo” (or “ground cuckoo from California”)

You can even see that he’s a cuckoo by the type of feet he has.

He maybe brown and dull but if one looks closely, he or she can see the red and blue stripe behind his eyes.

He rarely flies but he can run seventeen miles per hour.

I love them, what about you?

    the ebook in it or something. I think that you just
    can do with some percent to drive the message house a little bit,
    however instead of that, that is great blog. A fantastic read.
    I will definitely be back.
