A roadrunner doesn't go "meep meep", for he says "cucucucuckoo"
He isn't an ostrich or an emu, he is a cuckoo.
Even his scientific name means "Californian ground cuckoo" (or "ground cuckoo from California")
You can even see that he's a cuckoo by the type of feet he has.
He maybe brown and dull but if one looks closely, he or she can see the red and blue stripe behind his eyes.
He rarely flies but he can run seventeen miles per hour.
I love them, what about you?
