Not sure what species dis was but sept I saw one like it in a movie back in da day. He was hovering over da back yard yesterday. I figured he'd scare da rest a da birds away. So, I ran out da back door ripped off my shoyt and shook my fist at um. Needless he took off expeditiously.  :blues brothers:

We've got a turkey running around the neighborhood.  I saw it in the median by menards, wife saw it down the block and people across the street saw it in our driveway, but before I could get out there it left.       

I don't know what gender it identifies as.

We've got multiple feeders in da yard and enjoy all a da visitors dat we see. Da only ones I ain't crazy bout are dem dam doves. Dose tings dig and thrash true dem seeds and spread um all over da ground. Den da freakin squirrels invade da area fur dem seeds.

We have a pair of Mallard ducks (mom & pop) dat come every spring and I put out a bowl a water and flip out shredded bread fur dem. Day also eat mixed seeds wit corn. So yesterday here comes anudder male duck and is tryin ta steal Mr. Mallards bride. :doah:
 
It was more of a Mexican standoff den a fight. Da visiter keept stalking da female as da existing groom kept cuttin him off. Never saw any real battle, just jockeyin fur position. Finally da existing mate jumps on da female, holding on to da back a her neck and trowin da meat to her.
Den da udder male got frustrated and took off. :mad1:

 :coffee: ,,,,,Same Day Part #2

So, later in da day while resting in da shade of da bbq grill ( no not me...da ducks!) :bonk:   Here comes dis fox charging towards da ducks. Da male musta saw um and da ducks ran but were up in da air so fast I couldn't believe it. I told Borgie dat's probably da last we'll see a da ducks fur a while if at all. (Wrong!) :confused: day were back dat same night lookin fur food and water. I figured it must be my animal magnetism. :smoking:

Just saw our first orioles this a.m. Wonder if they weren't waiting for a little more foliage to hide in before showing up. Had both Baltimore and orchard orioles. Goldfinches are plentiful and eating thistle seed like crazy. Pheasants are very active and track through the yard almost daily. Seems like we have lots of hens so that's a good sign. Roosters are sure purty right now. Need to make a jaunt down to the pond area if the weather is rainy just to see what kind of waterfowl is hanging out there. Gotta remember my cell phone & spotting scope. Wonder where I put it?  :scratch:
