Something You Don’t See Everyday

I remember as a young boy watching Roadrunner and Wylie Coyote chasing around.  Wylie always got the worst of it.  In one such episode, the roadrunner ran straight up a very tall cliff.  I just didn’t think that could happen even then but laughed all the same when Wylie suffered his fate.

I have learned otherwise since.  A week ago, we visited the reopened Bastrop State Park and there found a roadrunner.  While we were trying to take a picture before he scurried off, he ran straight up a tree and onto a limb!  It was amazing to see it do so—run up the tree, bark clips flying while the bird did not.  So, there he is sitting pretty with dinner in his beak.
