Road Runners are frequent visitors in my southwest Arizona yard. They are timid, yet friendly. They are not the size portrayed in the cartoon and they surely cannot take on coyotes (who also visit me). The birds I have seen are approximately 16" beak-to-tail and stand 11" high. Basically, they are just a bit smaller than this tray. The bird on the tray very much resembles the coloring and stance of the desert birds. They allow me to get fairly close but take off quite quickly when they are intimidated. The enjoyed scoping out their next meal from a branch in my mesquite tree. My most vivid recollection of road runner activity is when like a bolt of lightening the bird hiding in a tree nearby swooped down and picked up a snake with it's beak - ten feet from my child's swing set in my back yard. Five minutes after we stopped swinging. The memory still giving me the creeps - 14 years later!
