A little while ago as I was sitting here at my computer, I saw a Roadrunner scurry through my yard. I have seen it ‘running’ up my street before, but never in my yard. I presumed that it had left and had not connected his appearance with the dearth of bird activity at my feeders. Just a moment ago, I saw him prance back with a House Sparrow in his mouth. I don’t know what it was that attracted Jasper’s attention – he had been sleeping on my bed -but all of a sudden he was standing on the bed behind me barking out the window, then jumped off the bed and flew threw the house and out the dog door. The Roadrunner dropped the dead sparrow as he fled.
