The Visitor

Knock, Knock, Knock!

It was 6:30 in the morning when the knock came at the door.

Who could it be? Could FedEx really be here this early?

Nope, no packages, just your friendly neighborhood roadrunner trying to have some breakfast. He was tapping on the glass of the front door trying to scare some lizards or bugs from their hiding places.

We don’t get many roadrunners here because we are at a higher elevation, and as it gets colder in the winter months their food supply dwindles. But this guy has come to visit us before the cooler temperatures prevail. We have seen him almost daily for a week now.

 I have enjoyed watching him hunt for lizards and bugs. I thought about finding something to feed him, but I don’t want him to hang around for an easy food source as the cooler nights come on, and I am certainly NOT gathering lizards in the yard for him. The roadrunner does not like us watching him and runs away as soon as he realizes that we’re there, but we were able to get some great pictures.


The last picture is of the sunset’s reflection on the clouds coming over the mountains in my front yard.

I just think it is a pretty picture.
