Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus).  Roadrunners are relatively tolerant of people; this shot was taken while the bird sat on our back fence.  Roadrunners are aggressive predators, though, and eat small mammals, lizards, snakes, tarantulas, scorpions and even small birds.  This bird does not go “meep meep” … but it does beat its prey to death on rocks.

And here he is doing what a roadrunner does best.
