The lesser roadrunner (Geococcyx velox) is a large, long-legged member of the cuckoo family, Cuculidae.
The lesser roadrunner resembles the greater roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus) in appearance and habit but is smaller and has a significantly shorter bill. Its breeding range is in southwestern Mexico, and north into the western side of the Sierra Madre Occidental range; also northern Central America, and a disjunct range in the northern Yucatán Peninsula.
