I received a report of someone seeing a "baby Roadrunner" just N of 
Rolla.  The reporter is from W Texas & is familiar with Roadrunners.  She 
stated she and her husband saw this bird, 2/3 size of the Roadrunner, 
assumed it was a baby (she'd seen an adult about 6 miles from there this 
Spring) and didn't think much more about the bird.   I've gone through the 
bird books, but just can't figure what bird they saw.   Any 
suggestions??   She said "it ran across the road just like any other 
Roadrunner, but it was the smallest one I ever saw"..   For those familiar 
with Rolla, this bird was out Vichy Rd, about 4-5 miles.
