Roadrunner

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on November 8, 2010

Some people do not realize that the old Roadrunner cartoons are based on a real bird.  This one had a nest nearby and stood on the pole to see better when hunting.  She would then grab the small moving creature and take it back to her young.

I grew up watching Road Runner outwit Coyote effortlessly. And occasionally, when I was a kid, I would spot one in my grandmother’s garden. Guess it’s one smart bird. Cool post!

I do love this cartoons when I am still young. The name roadrunner comes from the bird’s habit of racing down roads in front of moving vehicles and then darting to safety in the brush. This bird walks around rapidly, running down prey or occasionally jumping up to catch insects or birds.

I did not know that. Did it have a Coyote chasing her too? 🙂 Its funny how birds feed, they chew up the food and spit it in the mouth of their young. Thank god we are not birds.
