A Look Back to September...

as the Roadrunner looks in...peering into the sliding glass doors, that is, from the deck.
"La di dah..."

"Egads!"




"Hello?"
"Is anybody home?"

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, I admire the variety of birds you have around the pond on R*A*R. The fact that you are there, capture the action, and share with us makes it awesome. John

Revrunner said...

Fake eyelashes, I'm sure.

don said...

I'm surprised to see this roadrunner up close and no stranger to your deck. A fine series. My view of a roadrunner is obviously skewed by too many cartoons! :-)

nookworm said...

What a LOVELY creature and he has exceptionally beautiful eyelashes! Have you named him? The name Alfie comes to my mind but I don't know why!

Marissa said...

What a great shot!!! I so want to go into a park and take photos...

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I always enjoy seeing them on your blog.

SweetMarie said...

I would freak out to see a Roadrunner at my door!! Look at his long eyelashes! Awesome photos!

Jo said...

What a spectacular bird!

Linda R said...

What a handsome guy! My mom used to have a Roadrunner hang around her property, It only had one leg and he was pretty ugly.

Hugs~

Sylvia K said...

They are amazing little guys! Spectacular indeed!!

Nancy J said...

Hair down, hair up, peering in with a fierce stare, just wonderful photos, I smile as the words fit every photo so well.

Paula said...

Oh Roady I'm so sorry I ate your Grandpa years ago. Sure wish I had a zoom lens to capture those birds at the ranch. They run so fast I can't get a picture of them.

Bob Bushell said...

Look at me, ha ha ha.

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

But a freak. Why is he so scared?

Leave It To Davis said...

Doesn't it have eyelashes to die for??? I'm afraid I've seen the last of the road runners around my neighborhood. They've taken out all the trees around us now. You are quite blessed.

Red said...

I've never seen eyelashes on birds before.

Ela said...

This bird has beautiful eyelashes and a lovely haircut !

How cute. Love his eye lashes. He was just looking right at you and kinda posing for the camera.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Great close up shots.

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

Those silly birds always remind me of a teenager with spiked purple hair and too many piercings to discuss! They are definitely the "Rock-Stars" of our feathered friends.

Cute bird and interesting looks when they stand a feather on his head. Regards.

messymimi said...

Love those goofy birds! As my kids would say, he's "adorkable."

Small Kucing said...

Learn something new from you today. I have always assumed a roadrunner is as big as an ostrich. Blame it on the Road Runner cartoon that I watched in my youth LOL

mick said...

Great photos and such a cute bird.

I really want to see one of these - but I may have missed my best chance.

Great pictures.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

PS: I messed up the 'open' and 'shut' times for WBW this week - but got it sorted once I got some feedback!

Gert said...

Wow! This is very cool! Love these photos! Especially the last one where you can see its eye lashes! Amazing!!

Blessings,
Gert

Lynne said...

"la di dah" has a bit of a Protestant Irish look in his eye . . .
(a stretch, I know . . .)

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; What a lovely bird the Roadrunner is♡♡♡ I still remember I smiled a lot when I first saw him in your pictures p:-) Wondered "Egads!" is used by men as the way man and women are quite different in Japanese.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

orchid Miyako said...

Oh, we have different the way of talking (^^;)

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

I always love your roadrunner photos, Theresa! They look so cute! (I know how brutal they can be, but hey, that's the way God made them. :-) ) They are definitely cute.

CountryMouse said...

Love that you got close ups. What long eye lashes you have road runner. All the better to woo you with. The baldy patch makes it look kind of prehistoric.

diane said...

diane @ thoughts and shots

The Queen Jester said...

Those are the coolest birds, so funny to watch.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Anvilcloud said...

A beepin fine post.

Helma said...

I think this is really a very nice bird and must already alching when I see him lol .....

Rory Bore said...

oh my goodness, he's so pretty, but also somehow the dorkiest bird I have ever seen and I think I need about 8 of him just hanging around my back deck looking derp and majestic. :)

Hilary said...

He is so goofy cute. I love that expression. You got some good shots!

BumbleVee said...

Wow... you sneaked up pretty close to that guy....hahahhaha.........

Hannah said...

I love the close-ups of the face and feathers, such interesting colors in the feathers on its head. And the multi-colored stripe behind its eye looks very punk. With the wispy little feathers around its eyes and bill, it reminds me of an emu a little. I used to see them in my yard in San Diego when I lived on a canyon, they would perch on my back fence then sail off down the slope.

Mary Cromer said...

Yikes, I nearly missed it...the Roadrunner, always such fun to see when you post these guys!
