happened to walk past our breakfast nook window, and a skinny redhead was peeking in at me.
In the background, the Peacock Fambly was most ricky-tick rustling their feathers huffily. (yellow pointer)
These suckers are endangered species in some states (Ohio comes to mind). They are the oldest living species of birds, having been around for over two and a half million years...
Just for the helluvit, I gently opened our slidy-glass door to our porch. I've got a tub of corn out there. The sandhill cranes were very wary, and started to run away. I quickly spread about a coffee can of corn out.
Big long-leggedy beauties came RUNNING back, all wariness forgotten. The just went home on my corn. So I went and got my camera, and opened the screen door... walked right up to them.
In no more than two minutes, the corn was gone. Meanwhile, my peacocks are still feeling huffy in the background.
