Description

This roadrunner was at a bird feeder at Sandia Crest (~10,678 feet elevation!) and was first observed lying flat in the seed tray of the feeder. After it was disturbed by me and left, a few Mountain Chickadees arrived at the feeder. When I returned to the spot sometime later, the roadrunner was back in the feeder tray and then was observed on the ground under the feeder swallowing a bird -- perhaps a chickadee it had caught. Unfortunately I missed the actual capture of the prey bird.

Hours were spent cleaning and preparing this specimen, but it was surely worth it! i found this leucistic/melanin deficient fledgling crow right under an active nest along with a set of tertials from another leucistic/deficient fledgling from the same nest. It seems like the whole family was white.. bad diet that could be mixed with bad genetics.
I'm suspecting that the diet of this bird resulted in it being weak so it was easy for a cat to catch it. There are many cats in the area.

The parents and other live fledglings flying around on the trees (including people passing by..) were surely not amused when they saw me touching the dead one. The crows were making alarm calls over the park, i'm probably a target now :')
@featherenthusiast you may like this one!

Not sure what is going on but this is the fourth birder that I know of who has had a phoebe perch on their binoculars or on their person at Commons Ford.
