Roadrunners are one of the most charismatic and energetic birds that can be found in the Sonoran Desert. In this class, we will discover the details of the lives of roadrunners and their lesser known but equally interesting close relatives, the cuckoos and anis. This program will explore the ecology, diet and nesting habitats of these delightful birds. We will also pay special attention to the conservation needs of the yellow-billed cuckoo in Arizona. During this program, we will spend the early part of the morning with a walk in the Garden to observe our local roadrunners. Students are encouraged to bring their own binoculars.
