Unexpected visitor

As we talked in the lounge, Hubby suddenly said, 'There's a pheasant!' We quietly watched and photographed him as he wandered around in my flower garden and all around the house! I had occasionally seen him (I assume it was him, anyway) as we drove down the road but never expected him to show up so close to the house. He seemed to have found lots of bugs and stuff to eat, so maybe he'll be back some time.

We used to get a wild pheasant that would visit our backyard. My hubby and I called him "Fred."

Yes, he's a him. Females don't have the colourful head. If he's found plenty to eat he'll be back, as long as he doesn't have an unfortunate encounter with a car or a shotgun.

You are very lucky to have him visit so close. They are quite beautiful with their stunning markings.

That is really nice as an animal to get in front of the camera, at least here in Germany, here with us pheasants are the last years reintroduce and now is mating season and you can hear your loud cries over many meters ...

Wow, that pheasant must have made your day! It's such a beautiful bird! Thank you so much for being a part of Seasons! Forgot that you were an American, so you knew about these time changes, haha! We are dealing with it all the time now our son studies in Europe.
Have a great week!

He's gorgeous -- pretty sure it is a male, because I think the female is plainer brown , at least the pheasants we had in Oregon.
