CUCKOOS (not including Roadrunner)

Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Not a great shot -- but the large white spots on the tail and the yellow lower mandible are give-always!  
Greater Roadrunner (Seen in The Woodlands, TX)
Greater Roadrunner - The personable roadrunner rarely flies (only under duress), but sprint up to 15 miles an hour! This bird eats almost anything that moves (mice, spiders, lizards, small birds), and is especially noted for eating snakes (even the venomous ones).

A friend of our told us about this nest, about shoulder-high by the
tee-box at the Palmer Golf Course
here in The Woodlands.
(Four babies in the nest -
not running yet!)
