Roadrunners

New Mexico’s State Bird is famous as a cartoon character, but it turns out not much was known by scientists about the roadrunner until University of New Mexico undergraduate Tina Guo took on these birds for her senior thesis. We talk with Tina Guo, and her mentor, Dr. Christopher Witt from the Museum of Southwestern Biology. Learn about the lives, habits, and peculiarities of these charismatic feathery friends.
