During my first year of research at 3 Rivers Foundation, I soon noticed patterns that Greater Roadrunners have personalities like you would not imagine.

This is one of the first captures of a greater roadrunner hamming it up for one of my cameras. They are quite curious birds. Over time I also learned that their calls can actually sound like a crying puppy. Rascals tricking me thinking that I will discover a coyote puppy.
