#44 Greater Roadrunner
The Greater Roadrunner, a member of the cuckoo family, is an icon of the Southwest. Roadrunners thrive in harsh landscapes, hunting moisture-rich prey like mammals and reptiles to compensate for the scarcity of water in their diet. They’ll even kill and eat rattlesnakes, working in pairs to launch surprise attacks.
This patch is inspired by the Center for Biological Diversity, a nonprofit organization that works to protect endangered species and their fragile ecosystems, such as the deserts and arid grasslands where roadrunners live.
