This long-legged predatory bird is native to the American Southwest, parts of the lower Midwest, California, and northern Mexico. While it can do limited flight, the roadrunner is best known for its speed and agility. Some Native American cultures thought the bird protected people from evil spirits, and guided lost travelers to safety. In modern popular culture, it s a beloved Looney Tunes cartoon character from many Warner Bros. short feature films symbolic of speed, cunning, and fearlessness.
