Roadrunners are quick enough to catch and eat rattlesnakes. Other food includes insects and lizards.
The Roadrunner’s nasal gland eliminates excess salt, instead of using the urinary tract like most birds.
Roadrunners prefer walking or running and attain speeds up to 17 mph. hour. Like a hawk, falcon, eagle, owl, or raven, the Roadrunner is also considered a bird of prey.
On a final note, I am looking forward to my upcoming trip to "Bird Island" in Northern Mexico. The trip is confirmed for this Saturday. Now if only the week would move a little faster:) More tomorrow...
