First time i've seen this pair here:

thought they were turkeys at first


Spring has definitely sprung for the birds. Glad to see so much bird activity.

Location would be nice Russ? Supposed to guess? Your backyard is my guess. :)

The week my son was born 4 peacocks showed up on my roof, never saw them before but it was really pretty neat.

Russ can't tell from the pic but is the other a pea-hen?

both appeared to be hens. it was a split second photo out the window. sorry the lilac was in the way for bird #2. You know He's somewhere near though.

The doe has been running around as well, but her yearlings are gone now. she's had 4 as far as I've tracked. they live up on the hill and transition once in awhile across the lawn. And then the fox as well, but it runs too fast to capture a picture.

Fun to have wildlife walking around when in meetings all day.

black tail. she's not fawning.. she's looking for him, but that was a month ago. the buck was a fork last year. so.. and no, i don't hunt from my window, except gophers. gophers are not welcome. everyone else, come and play.. had to tell one of her fawns to kindly not eat roses.

No you can't hunt your pets! Pretty neat to be immersed in the environment of which you live.
