Even though they don’t go “meep meep,” the roadrunner is still a fast running land bird found in the Southwestern United States and Mexico. Found in desert and arid climates, the roadrunner only reaches a height of about 2 feet, but what it lacks in height it makes up for in speed- reaching speeds of up to 26 mph. Roadrunners are opportunistic omnivores - feeding on whatever they are able to catch. Roadrunners either live alone or in pairs, as they are one of many monogamous breeds of birds.
