Death in Desert

Fight For Life


I never knew that Road Runners would take other birds for consumption.  Today was another example I’ve seen since I’ve been here in the high desert.  This road runner has caught a small house finch  and she is fighting for her life.  I’m afraid she lost the fight.

    As I happened to look out the window this morning, that very road runner captured another small bird. I guess this is a common occurrence with road runners. They are a predator for sure. Now, I kind of feel bad for putting out groceries that attract the smaller song birds only to have them preyed upon by the others
