Description

I came upon a roadrunner in the shrub and it stared at me, as it hid in the scrub; like a cat in a box. I saw the tail-feathers bobbing up and down and as I drew near, could hear the clack-clack-clacking funky sound of this grey runner. Approaching closer, I was surprised to find not one, but two, doing the hanky-panky.
