Road Runners

Eating Other Birds


I saw some behavior from this bird I’ve never seen before.  I knew from past experience they will eat snakes, small lizards and pretty much anything else they come across.  The one thing I witnessed the other day kind of surprised me.  They will prey upon and take small birds.  This large Road Runner came running up on a bunch of house wrens and doves feeding on the ground.  The bird took and grabbed a small finch and commenced to run off with it and then I watched it kill the bird .  I assume to consume it, but I didn’t see that actually happen.
