I love these little guys.  They always have the look like they're just slightly unscrewed!  Greater Roadrunner in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California  (Geococcyx californianus)

It's always beneficial to know your surroundings. This Greater Roadrunner seems to have taken it to the next level, and learned how to read signs. Watch out for that Teddy Bear Cactus, roadrunner!
