Some birds are shy, some are sneaky, some so fast you can’t tell (think of an Anna’s Hummingbird in flight), some are unapproachable…and some are, well, self-assured…think Steller’s Jay…or this guy:rrThis image was shared by Kirk Gooding, from his final day in the Chirichahuas of southeastern Arizona.  The roadrunner is more than a exemplary cartoon character from the old days when theatres showed cartoons.  He is the alpha bird of his desert habitat.
