Anyone who was ever a child recognizes the ROADRUNNER Geococcys californianus from his cartoon antics with Wyley Coyote.
The Road Runner is actually a member of the Cuckoo family Cuculidae and does not have a clue about going "beep beep". It's call is a series coos, not unlike a cuckoo, in addition to a wooden clatter produce by the bill.
He lives in dry open habitat in the SW U.S. and Mexico and feeds on small snakes, lizzards and insects.
