On May 18th, Ranger Ethan was walking towards the restrooms, and he noticed a mischievous roadrunner near the entrance to the women’s restroom. The roadrunner gave a defiant look, rushed into the restroom, and perched on the dividers between the stalls (fortunately the restroom was vacant). It took Ranger John and Ethan about 20 minutes to coax the bird out of the stall, all the while a group of onlookers accumulated around the doorway. A few small children peeked around the corner to catch a glimpse of the roadrunner, which was probably the closest that they have ever been or ever will be to this creature known for its speed and dexterity.
