Subject: Harper Co. Roadrunner Nesting
I posted a prequel to this email over a year ago.
This is a follow up / update to that post.

I talked to the owner of the land that the Roadrunner is nesting
on. He said this year, the male built a nest, but the female has
disappeared. As a result the male is singing a lot, perhaps trying
to attract it's previous (or a new) mate.

He also reported that they have successfully raised young in both of the
past 2 years.

The nest is located several miles east of Anthony.

"Nothing else that lives in the desert, not even the spiny cactus
or resinous creosote bush, is more at home there."
