Greater Roadrunner

I’ve seen roadrunners a few times in my life but since I got back into birding five years ago, they’ve been a nemesis bird for me.  I finally got a unsatisfactory glimpse of one last year breaking the spell.  Last Sunday, I was visiting Dierks Lake in SW Arkansas looking for Cerulean Warbler when I drove past one on the side of the road.  I slammed on the brakes (it was a very lightly traveled road) backed up, then quietly getting out the camera and out of the car.  My bird was very cooperative, maybe he likes having his picture taken.  Here is the best of the lot.
