Actually, that should be more like pheasant through glass — I snapped a photo of this handsome fellow through my bedroom window yesterday, thus why the quality isn’t as sharp as it should be, but I thought it was a lucky shot just the same. They move very quickly — he was on the march here and then flew away moments after I clicked the shutter.
Joining the menagerie yesterday was this pigeon (below) — they are like “feathered rats”, I suppose, but their colors are beautiful and they do clean up all the stray seed. I think those tracks must belong to Mr. Pheasant.
Myrt and Gert (below) looked on from the comfort of their apple tree perch, spreading the latest gossip, no doubt. :)
After all the bitterly cold weather we’ve been experiencing, we are to get snow this evening, changing to rain and FOG overnight. Temperatures are to climb above the freezing mark again by tomorrow with some extended freezing rain and ice pellets in the mix. Joy!
