As I mentioned the other day, Melissa and I found a Greater Roadrunner nest just a block away from where we live. I found the nest completely by accident. On our walk we heard and saw a Curve-billed Thrasher (picture below) singing loudly from the top of a building over some cholla cacti. When we passed the cacti again, I peered through the thorns in to see if the thrasher was roosting. Instead, I found myself eye to eye with a roadrunner!
Yesterday we went back to get some pictures of both birds. The roadrunner nest held three white eggs. We’ll do our best to get pictures of the nestlings once they hatch.
Here are some videos of the thrasher singing.
The thrasher sings about six seconds into this next video
