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.
