Yesterday I put Katie in her stroller and we did our afternoon 1.2 mile walk up the road and back again. As we returned to camp, I saw our Roadrunner running across the road and the sand on it's way to the beach and water below. I got a quick shot.
Then I put away the stroller, put Katie on her leash and we walked up to the top of Dillard's Circle where I had a full view of the hillside down to the lake. And there was our Roadrunner. Just standing there with a lizard in his mouth.
I'd gotten a quick, blurred photo of him before, heading back the other way, getting ready to cross the street, and he had a lizard in his mouth then, too. But it was a bad photo, not blog-worthy, darn!
But yesterday I had all kinds of time to get a good, clear shot of him on the beach with dinner in his mouth. He was a little distance away, so I had to zoom in quite a bit, but I got him! And here he is:
And homeward he went. I wonder if he has babies in a nest. I thought he would eat the lizard, but he just held it in his beak. So maybe he's bringing it home to feed other little Roadrunners.
From me and Katie, have a great Tuesday, everyone! :)
