Backyard Surprise

Yesterday, two neighbors saw a pheasant in their yard. Imagine my surprise this morning when my husband spotted him next door. We were enjoying a morning coffee when Ian spotted him. We are in an urban neighborhood with some wildlife: possums, raccoons, hawks, even coyotes at the park. I have never seen a pheasant here. We do have plenty of urban chickens in the neighborhood since the city allowed them. I hope our pheasant will find his way to a safer place. He's not very street smart. I did enjoy watching him intimidate the neighbor's cat, who has killed some of my birds on his neighborhood forays. The cat stays out of our yard now or at least I don't see him.
