One of my favorite books when I was a kid was Roger Tory Peterson's Field Guide to Western Birds. I always longed to see a Road Runner in the wild. To see one kill a rattlesnake, that would be the cherry on the sundae.
Road Runners are very cool birds; they're giant Cuckoos. I never saw one battle a rattler, but I definitely saw one running along with a dead snake in its mouth on more than one occasion.
Love the roadrunner picture. I'd love to see one in action too.
