Road Racer

While in the south Texas’ Rio Grande Valley this past spring, I was fortunate to run across several Greater Roadrunners (Geococcyx californianus). It was quite a sight to watch these quick-footed birds run about the Texas landscape! Here are a few of my favorite images as this beautiful bird ran around, looking for a snack (and grabbing a grasshopper), then stopping by the waterhole for a drink:
