This Roadrunner was caught in the aviary at the Living Desert Museum. It lived up to its name by running back and forth in an attempt to escape. I wish I hadn't chopped off the end of its tail when I took this picture, but I was happy to get this much of such a hyperactive bird! We saw these birds in the wild too, often crossing a road! And no, they didn't go, "Beep, beep!" :) Roadrunners eat lizards and snakes.
