Morning visitor

This roadrunner was a visitor this morning in my backyard.I have my slider open and there was way too much noise outside. The other birds were in a tizzy! And this guy is why!

The roadrunner is a symbol of the southwest region. But this is a really nasty bird -- I have seen what he does to his captured prey. I know he eats snakes and lizards, but he also eats baby birds. There are several nests in the trees in the yard as well as lots of baby quail. That's why the other birds were sounding the alarm.
