This is one very cold bird who’s so fluffed up he doesn’t look like himself.
Can you guess who he is? Here’s a hint: I put part of his name in the title of this blog.
Cris Hamilton sent me this photograph of a greater roadrunner she saw on a trip to New Mexico last December. She writes: “We found that the roadrunners were very skittish – not real easy to find, and once found, they would take off quickly in the opposite direction. … We found this one at the visitor’s center of the White Sands National Monument. It was really cold – like in the teens if I remember correctly, but sunny.”
At that temperature he’s indeed a “cold road.” Click here to see what greater roadrunners normally look like.
