This visitor to my garden may be jung and inexperienced
but as I went to call the chickens, he promptly displayed
His feathers are not yet fully grown but you have to give
him 10 points for trying.
Shivering his feathers and turning
to show off the back end which displayed the engineering
works of how he can lift and hold up that huge fan
when it is fully grown.
Actually, I find the back view quite enchanting.
After a curtain call or two he calmly walked off into
the rose garden to help with the weeding.
I look forward to having all three fly up for a visit.
Their flight, for such a big bird, is surprisingly silent.
For all those of you who wondered how we can stand
those loud screeches, it is just like the striking of the
grandfather clock, you sit up in bed as though startled
when it does NOT strike. I had not realised how much
I had missed the peacocks until I heard their familiar
call again. Apart from that, they certainly let you know
when a strange car comes down the road and since the
goose is taking a break from guard duty while she
incubates, it feels good to have a second line of defence.
Have a happy week every one!
