This is 'my' pheasant, who comes at least twice a day for food....not the best photo in the world, but I was standing on tiptoe with my arms raised trying to take the photo from the utility room window...he is a bit shy, although yesterday he must have been really hungry because he came runnng down the little hill towards the dishes as I was filling them:))

thanks Tony.....you enjoy yours, too!

He is quite big Anna-Maria....except when anything makes a noise he sort of deflates a bit so he's not as conspicuous! As you can see, parts of my garden are not exactly cultivated...:))

Thanks Sylvia...he sits in the garden in the early morning and 'calls' ...makes quite a racket, too! Once he's been fed, he roosts where you see him now, sometimes for hours at a time...I feel very privileged to have him here:)

Its always nice to have a part of wild garden, Barbara... I know I have... or is it because I have to start weeding there...;-)

He looks very well fed Barbara, careful the neighbors will not put an eye on him ;-)

thanks Peter...he was calling his unmissable cry this morning at 6.45 and there wasn't any food left, so I donned my dressing gown and went to put food out...he was only about two feet away from me...how I was wishing for a camera!!
