New Arrival

I thought I'd seen it all when the Eagle bounced into the point tree, the Sandhill Cranes buzzed over the roof, and the Loons started patrolling off the sea wall.  Today, we have a new arrival, a Pheasant!  I'd only seen these birds from the car while driving on the highway in California.  I had no idea just how big they are--pretty close to chicken-sized.  Here's a picture of the fellow on our West shore.  He's not a bit shy.  He just watched me as I shooed the ever present Geese off the property.
