Junior is back!


Junior stops by quite often now. In this series, he was looking in through the kitchen window for the longest time - I think he saw his own reflection or he was hungry LOL

It was very foggy that day, quite unusual for La Bocana.

I'm sure you know this, but look at his toes (or his print in the sand) roadrunners have 2 toes pointed forward, 2 backward on each foot. unusual characteristic if you ask me. Must be an adaptation for combining speed with agility, given their hunting prey and technique - but i don't know for sure!
That "zygotactylous toe set up - is a family characteristic for cuckoos.

so David - I guess its

That toe arrangement gave rise to some indigenous people's reverence for the bird. It's said that they thought it was magical because you can't tell from footprints whether it was coming or going.

It's true.
I watched a documentary series when I was a kid. Seems roadrunners have the supernatural ability to outsmart coyotes that can read and order stuff from a Company called "ACME".
It was extensively documented. True educational programming for children.

I never noticed the toes, how really interesting. I am going to hunt for toeprints the next time Junior visits.

Junior is REALLY fast and completely unafraid of Rex (our dog), it is amazing how he scampers quickly!

Don't let Rex read the ACME catalog. He will order all kinds of goofy inventions. But he will never catch Junior.

Poor Rex is getting up there in his old age ... hard of hearing, back legs failing him (typical for springer spaniels), slow to move anywhere any more.

Junior is a handsome dude and just as well that he can just scamper past Rex - who continues snoring in his spot by the front door!

I’m presently in New Zealand where they have lots of bird life but haven’t seen a Junior yet. Lots of funky looking chicken like birds but no roadrunners yet.

Ya, that's just the start.

Junior and his fine babe , then it's junior and his fine babe's.
Pretty soon you're overran with little Jr's running all over the place stirring up a ruckus...

Never thought about it David K but you are right about the scorpions. I have never seen one here at the house.

There are rattlers around town but I think in the 12 years we have been here, we have seen 2 anywhere near us. One was way too close for comfort since it was hissing at Rex right outside our house!
