South Shore Playground to Burkett Fitness Hike

Came upon this road runner as he was hunting a tree lizard on the Lanky Lackey trail. The road runner went into the tree and the lizard was saved.

Just a hike with friends through the park.  We saw a cottontail rabbit and "saved" a tree lizard by spooking a roadrunner who was hunting it - I've attached a photo of the road runner to this report.
