Bird Tales

This Roadrunner (actually Greater Roadrunner, but since there aren't any Lesser Roadrunners, we're good to go without the modifier!) hangs out by the shuttle shed. 'Roady' seems pretty aggressive - begging for food and attention. Seems to especially like children. As a food source, perhaps?

This Spotted Owl lives in Alan's neighborhood across from Sabino Canyon. Note that the head is turned about 180 degrees to the back. Yes, I wish I were that flexible! This bird does eat small mammals...
