Road runner

In the famous Warner Brothers cartoons, a fast-moving bird called a “road runner” makes life difficult for a not-so-wily coyote. The real road runner is actually a type of:

A) Cuckoo
B) Pheasant
C) Stork
D) Turkey

Your answer — C) Stork — was incorrect.

There are two species of road runner, both native to Central America. They are poor flyers, but — as the name suggests — good runners, attaining sprint speeds of up to 25 kph (15 mph). Although they are cuckoos, road runners do not lay eggs in other birds’ nests.
