Alex Chadwick In Big Bend: The Roadrunner

SearchNet Media

In the Looney Tunes cartoon, the Road Runner is potential prey for Wile E. Coyote. But in the real world, the Greater Roadrunner is an excellent predator. BirdNote contributor Alex Chadwick visited Mark Flippo, a retired park ranger at Big Bend National Park, to learn more about the behavior of these fascinating birds.

Funding for the BirdNote series on Big Bend National Park comes from Deedie and Rusty Rose.
