Cuckoos Coo Coo

A Greater Roadrunner (ground cuckoo) at the Living Lab This past Saturday Docent Joe Tabor spotted a mid-town Ground Cuckoo at the Living Lab, or more commonly known as a Greater Roadrunner. Vicious predators they are - having been known to kill and eat whole rattlesnakes. They are year-round residents to this region, but not so commonly seen here in mid-town Tucson so this is a treat! Keep an ear out for their coo-coo-cooing calls.

Hear their coos at Cornell's All About Birds website.
