The Pleasant Pheasant

Do you remember the first visit from "our" gorgeous Male Pheasant?
It was March 11, 2013, a beautiful snowy day and I shared pictures here.
 
Well he's back...
 
and when I say he's back, he thinks he lives here.
I like this picture because you can see how thick and large
his legs and feet are.
 
 He arrives early in the day, 6 ish and sounds a bit like a rooster.
 
Looking pretty comfy here,
I was outside with him, about 20 feet away.
 
The hubs went out and got some corn for him,
they like corn you know.
He lays it right on that gray block ledge.
 
He gobbles it all up and the hubs puts out more.
 
All of these pictures were taken over the last few days of March,
 
he lets me get pretty close now.
Perhaps it's his way of saying thanks for the food.
 
Here he is strutting his stuff like he owns the place,
I think he is here to stay.
Did I mention we live in the suburbs?
 
I'm so sorry if I have not been by to visit,
I have been so tired from chasing my Pheasant,
I am trying to catch up.

  6. He's one good looking bird! These are wonderful photos. We had one in our neighborhood last year. We thought he was an escapee from the rod and gun club as they release pheasants to shoot every year. We were rooting for him to survive but we haven't seen him for months now.

  15. Debbie, he could take up permanent residence. But, he really should be looking for a female about now. Great shots of your friendly Pheasant.

  18. Hi Debbie...To funny...I'm betting he has outwitted the hunting season from last falls release or he is actually a city slicker that moved to the suburbs {smile} !!

  21. Since you live in the suburbs, I wonder where he came from? I see them out in the country every now and then. I hope a cat or some other animal doesn't get him. He's a beauty and you've gotten some awesome shots!

  29. What beautiful pictures of the Pheasant. I loved this one. Regretfully, my Dad and brothers used to go pheasant hunting. I was the dog that went through the bushes to scared the birds.
    Now, I think they are so beautiful and the pictures of this one are awesome. Perhaps you should give him a name. I certainly don't like the idea of killing them anymore.
    Blessings!

  30. That is so awesome! I wish I had one!

  31. Of course you have to let the help get close enough to put the food on the table, uh, ledge... I bet he is just so happy that he is being fed, rather than being the dinner...
