Two Roadrunner nest have been spotted; this one is in a cholla (and that's all I'll say).

This nest has 4 chicks!
TJ reports:

I was at the canyon today and was able to get a pic of the baby roadrunners in their nest with mama feeding them a lizard. Well, more like shoving a lizard down one of their throats. The tail and legs still wiggling in the beak!

Thanks, mom!

The whole enchi-lizard

And finally, thanks to Michael aka Hot Chocolate, I found the 4-chick nest at the end of the Ned-less Nature Walk on 4/16. Marty got some shots from a safe distance with a lot of zoom. Bob used binoculars to confirm that there are still 4 chicks.
