Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.
We had a chill in the air all weekend...
thus the furnace did get turned on.
Plus last night we had our first freeze.
Last week driving home I was privy
to a sight I have not seen in a long while.
There were two female pheasants
on the side of the road.
It has been over 10 years since I had
a glimpse of a male pheasant...
and over 30 years since seeing a female one.
As a teen and young adult,
my dad enjoyed pheasant hunting
and always brought many home to eat.
Without a bird dog.
That was a time where they were very plentiful.
So much land has been cleared for subdivisions
that the poor animals including the pheasants
What a shame it is.
Even as a kid I loved hearing
both the pheasant call and that of the bobwhite.
Needless to say I have heard neither since a teen.
There are a few farms that breed pheasants
here in Michigan and release them
to be hunted for those willing to pay the price.
I so enjoyed creating this display
as pheasants do like a ripe apple in their diet.
I added this feather boa just for fun!
Bob created this Primitive sign for me eons ago.
Do you have pheasants or even bobwhites
in your neck of the woods?
Pheasant Blessings To All!
