The Greater Roadrunner.... now this is a cool bird to be lucky enough to spot!  I've had two sightings in my life....the first along Interstate 15 on the California side of Vegas and the last just this March in the High Desert of Southern California.

The bird's unusual X-shaped footprints are used as sacred symbols to ward off evil in many Pueblo tribes--partially because they invoke the protective power of the roadrunners themselves, and partially because the X shape of the tracks conceals which direction the bird is headed (thus throwing malignant spirits off-track).  A great shot of this roadrunner found in Big Bend ...
