Tales of a Roadrunner 5

It is the state bird of New Mexico. It was adopted in 1949 under the name of “Chapparal Bird.”

 

To warm up without spending a lot of energy, roadrunners erect their feathers to expose the underlying black skin to the sun’s rays.

 

A group of roadrunners are collectively known as a "marathon" and a "race" of roadrunners. identify.whatbird.com/obj/306/_/Greater_Roadrunner.aspx
