Flight Of The Roadrunner

Roadrunners will fly only when necessary.

They fly close to the ground when they are going down hill or sense that a predator is near,  but they can only stay off the ground for a few seconds at a time.  Roadrunners can run up to 17 mph and sprint briefly at much higher speeds in pursuit of prey.
