Pheasants on parade yesterday. Saw 8, mostly roosters, digging through the garden & trying to pluck off the few remaining nannyberries. Hilarious watching as they got out on the smaller branches & fell out of the trees.

Later afternoon yesterday & this morning the pheasants were in the crabapple trees. Really tough to get good shots of them as they're so spooky. There's a reason they're survivors.

I have a nice raised deer stand that I hunt in when I go to my buddies farm in SW MN.  I can open a window when a deer isn't looking and they don't even know I am there.  The pheasants all fly  away when I even wiggle it.  Much more wary than deers.

Well, I'll try to keep you supplied with some pics from time to time. The pheasants like our yard and some of the plantings we've made over the years. They've been sleeping in the evergreen trees lately. About scare the living crap out of me when I accidentally scare them off their roost.

I see the wind blew my bulk sunflower feeder out of the tree last nite along with a lot of other stuff. Poppy & I will have to retrieve and refill it after the Mrs. dr. appt.

I need to find a bigger feeder for my sunflower seeds. I wonder if one of those chick watering cans would work? That thing must hold a gallon?

Dutchy, get one of these!! All metal and plastic. Skurrels proof. A bit more spendy then most but I've had these for I bet over 15 years. You can replace the plastic, i have but it's  not because of bird or skurrels abuse.

I can see why them Pheasants are so skiddish tho, imagine getting chased from day one from the air and ground predators.  Then come fall you got guys like me with dogs chasing them more..no thanks don't sign me up for 1 after life..
