Description

This shining cuckoo was on the beach on driftwood. It was clearly identifiable as a shining cuckoo although not so clear in the photo. It was thought by some observers to be injured or possibly battered by the storm that morning, as it wasn't moving far. However it did fly away.

The roadrunner generally measures 18 to 22 inches in length and averages between 8–15 ounces in weight. These fast running creatures have been recorded at a speed of 20 miles/hour. The roadrunner is an opportunistic omnivore. Its diet mainly consists of insects, small reptiles, rodents and some fruits and seeds. The roadrunner will pretty much eat anything that it can catch. This one was in the process of foraging for a juicy grasshopper in which it latter devoured.

Description from Wikipedia

The cuckoos are a family, Cuculidae, of near passerine birds, named for the Common Cuckoo of Europe. The order Cuculiformes, in addition to the cuckoos, also includes the turacos (family Musophagidae, sometimes treated as a separate order, Musophagiformes). Some zoologists and taxonomists have also included the unique Hoatzin in the Cuculiformes, but its taxonomy remains in dispute. The cuckoo family, in addition to those species named as such, also includes the roadrunners, koels, malkohas, couas, coucals...
