Greater Roadrunner

Yucca Valley, Palm Springs, Cal

Here is a bird I definitely wanted to see. On our last day at our friends house in Yucca Valley this one showed up at our doorsteps.
It came scrounging for food. Moved rapidly and made it very difficult to get a shot of.
This is the best I got in a 2 minutes frenzy which included getting woken up from my siesta, scrambling for my camera and then running around barefooted to try to get a shot. Lots of fun!

other sizes: small medium original

Great action shot! I also love your photos of Thai birds. (I'm from Thailand and still don't have bird photos from there. I love birds but don't know much about them.)

Great shot of a roadrunner - the action and crispness here and in the acorn woodpecker are a perfect mix.
