I heard a couple days ago from someone in the park they had just seen a roadrunner. Today it made itself very obvious running out of the park and across a street to grab a lizard out of bush. This one seems very adapted to our suburban park environment. It did not kill the lizard but took it down whole.
seen 4 times throughout the day, close proximity. seen preening and calling while doing yard work.
The cuckoos are a family of birds, Cuculidae, the sole taxon in the order Cuculiformes. The cuckoo family includes the common or European cuckoo, roadrunners, koels, malkohas, couas, coucals and anis. The coucals and anis are sometimes separated as distinct families, the Centropodidae and Crotophagidae respectively.
