Hunts by walking briskly and running toward prey once it is located.

The adult uses its long tail as a rudder for maneuvering while running.

Roadrunner Adaptations...

Roadrunner skin is heavily pigmented. On cool mornings, the bird positions itself with its back towards the sun and erects its feathers, thus allowing the sun to strike directly on the black skin which quickly absorbs heat energy. This makes it possible for the bird to achieve body heating without unnecessary expenditure of metabolic energy
