O.K. Show of hands. How many of you were raised on Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoons? I was. No matter what he tried, the coyote could not catch the road runner. I feel his pain.
When I came to New Mexico in July I saw a road runner running across the road in front of the house that I was preparing to view. I didn’t get that house, but I did decide that I wanted to live in that area. By the time I got my phone out, the bird was gone and I couldn’t get a picture.
Since I have moved here I have seen road runners almost every day. No matter what I try, I cannot catch a picture of the road runner. I had to pull the one above from the internet. Tonight while I was walking with the dogs we saw a family of 5 road runners sitting in a driveway. I very slowly and quietly pulled my phone from my pocket. They ran off into the brush – AGAIN!
I’m considering a stake out – or a bird blind. Am I starting to sound like the coyote?
