Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus), Laguna Seca Ranch, Texas. Roadrunners are numerous and their breeding populations are stable. Threats to roadrunners include illegal shooting, often in the mistaken belief that they threaten populations of popular game birds. Habitat loss is a bigger threat, as roadrunners need room to roam and are susceptible to development that fragments their territories and eliminates prey and nest sites. Household pets, feral animals, pedestrians and traffic can also displace or kill roadrunners. Southern California has seen a significant drop in roadrunner numbers over the past several decades.

Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis), Laguna Seca Ranch, Texas. Northern Cardinal populations slightly increased between 1966 and 2014. The expansion of people and their backyards over the last two centuries has been good for cardinals. However, habitat loss in southeastern California, at the edge of the cardinal’s range, may cause the disappearance of the cardinal population there.

Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris), Laguna Seca Ranch, Texas.This species are still fairly common, but populations have been dropping for several decades. The North American Breeding Bird Survey estimated a decline of 62% between 1966 and 1995, but the 1966-2014 survey does not find significant decreases, suggesting that populations may have stabilized, or at least the decline has slowed, since 1995. Painted Buntings are popular cage birds and are often trapped on their wintering grounds and sold illegally.

Green Jay (Cyanocorax yncas), Laguna Seca Ranch, Texas. The South Texas population of Green Jay is unusual in retaining related nonbreeders in family flocks, but without cooperative breeding (i.e., helpers-at-the-nest). Flocks in this region consist of a breeding pair, current year's nestlings, and one year-old non-breeding jays from the previous year's reproductive effort. The Green Jay's range has been expanding in Texas, and populations increased between 1966 and 2015, according to the North American Breeding Bird Survey.
