This roadrunner lives in the space between my parents' home and the neighbors', a 10' X 30' patch of juniper and holly. We are all so accustomed to each other, he is a very cooperative model. I was so pleased to be able to take dozens of photos... he'll also become a woodcut but probably not this shot as most wouldn't recognize him without his tailfeathers!

Este correcaminos vive en el espacio entre la casa de mis padres y los vecinos, una area 3 por 9 metros de enebro y acebo. Estamos tan acostumbrados el uno al otro que resulta ser un model sumamente cooperativo. Felizmente tome docenas de fotos... el sera tambien un grabado en madera pero probablemente no este foto como la mayoria no lo reconocera sin sus plumas extremas.

Lucky to be so close to one -- when I was a kid I loved those birds.

I've never seen a roadrunner before. They don't look like the cartoon!
