Roadrunners Climb Trees

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the temperature is in the 90s F today. I am able to walk outside in this weather. I hadn’t seen any roadrunners lately and thought that they were avoiding the heat, until today. I spotted a large roadrunner and he spotted me. I got pretty close, and he made a whirring sound. I wasn’t sure if he was saying ‘don’t come any closer.’ He hoped up onto a tree and made his way up through the branches until I couldn’t see him anymore.

Click on the photos twice to enlarge and get a better view.

He’s in there somewhere keeping an eye on me.

      I had seen them jump up to the top of people’s fences including the wall around our yard. Then I saw one hop up the branches of our grapefruit tree. They are pretty agile.

    Here in washington we’re supposed to hit the mid 90’s this weekend. Yikes. That ends up with a heat advisory for I didn’t know that about roadrunners. How fun.
