Roadrunner Fun Facts

February 19, 2019

This is about real roadrunners, not that erstwhile new roadrunner species I wrote about some years back.

(James W. Cornett, Desert Magazine)

From the Desert Sun, written by James W. Cornett of Desert Magazine: “Why do Roadrunners disappear from the desert each winter. This ecologist has a guess.

It addresses questions like:

  • How many kinds of roadrunners are there?
  • Can they fly, or just run?
  • How fast can they run?
  • What do they eat?
  • How do they deal with snakes?
  • Do they enjoy visiting humans in their homes?
  • And most critically, do they migrate south for the winter, and if not, where are they?

You will enjoy it.
