Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus)

We occasionally get Roadrunners in our garden, hunting for geckos and small birds. They will hide in the bushes near the bird feeders hoping to catch something. We were sitting on our patio, about 6 yards (5.5 m) away, and it stopped, looked at us for a few seconds before jumping up onto the fence, dropping into the pasture and heading over towards our distant neighbour.
