It is probably common but I had never seen a Roadrunner in a tree. I pulled into the New Mexico Welcome center on I-10 near the Texas border this afternoon and spotted this guy. I always travel with my camera handy! Nice welcome to New Mexico-unless you are the lizard.

Nice pic. Not only do they go up trees, they fly quite well and we git them on our roof as well. They will go wherever the lizards are.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Sorry about the delay in posting but I have been traveling and without internet access for a while.
