Birdorable 188: Greater Roadrunner

Cute Birdorable Greater Roadrunner

Today's addition in our Birdorable Bonanza is the Greater Roadrunner, a long-legged bird and the largest North American cuckoo. Its breeding habitat is desert and shrubby country in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Although capable of flight, it spends most of its time on the ground where it can run at speeds of 20 miles per hour, which is an important capability when you're being chased a coyote, of course. ;)

And here's a sneak peek at tomorrow's bird in the Birdorable Bonanza. Until the 31st of July we'll be adding a new bird every day until we reach #200 at the end of this month.

I hope it's a wig parrot. Those parrots have very fancy "hairdos", but the hair is really feathers that they can flip to apond girl parrots. I secretly like Taylor Swift and one time I jumped in the toilet (my toilet's 22 years old).
