Inquisitive Roadrunner

And another southwest U.S. (though it is found as far east as western Louisiana) that is also found in SE Colorado is the Greater Roadrunner; and again, I photographed this bird at the Bosque Del Apache NWR. It was an inquisitive bird--it stopped to watch me while I watched it from my car. Interesting, I found an even more inquisitive Roadrunner in Cottonwood Canyon in Baca County, Colorado a few years ago--that bird even approached within a few feet of my car.

Though this roadrunner was only about 40 feet from my car, the photo didn't come out as good as others--I'm just learning to use my new DSLR Canon xti and I think the pic is overexposed a little. The top pic is good for enlarging (by double-clicking on it ) but the bottom pic has been as enlarged as possible with reasonable quality.SeEtta


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
