The pheasants are winning… Jessica March 15, 2013 at 2:36 pm - Reply Crikey, you’re right… no wonder they were interested in me 🙁 Countryside Tales March 15, 2013 at 2:37 pm - Reply Oh my goodness- they’ve got you sussed haven’t they? Won’t be long before you come down in the morning to find them waiting politely at the kitchen table for breakfast. Jessica March 15, 2013 at 5:40 pm - Reply Perhaps I should give them a pheasant flap? Em March 15, 2013 at 3:18 pm - Reply What happened to a healthy fear of humans? Jessica March 15, 2013 at 5:45 pm - Reply Humans bearing birdseed/grubs/Fritillaries (delete as appropriate) snowbird March 15, 2013 at 3:30 pm - Reply OH, OH, OH! How breathtakingly beautiful they are and what a WONDERFUL picture. I’m really jealous that you have these fabulous birds trotting around after you!!! xxxxx Jessica March 15, 2013 at 5:47 pm - Reply The robins are less impressed! Annie @ knitsofacto March 15, 2013 at 4:12 pm - Reply I really do think they have the measure of you now, they know you’re more adore than twelve bore! Jessica March 15, 2013 at 5:54 pm - Reply They snuck up behind me.. I didn’t know they were there until they started making clucking noises. Jill Chandler March 15, 2013 at 4:27 pm - Reply Goodness they are tame! The photo is therefore awesome, I feel a painting coming on, will leave your bottom out of it, nice and trim tho it be! Were they about to fight? Certainly are up here, and herding the females. Jessica March 15, 2013 at 5:59 pm - Reply They do square up occasionally these two, but I think in this instance it was Mr Cameraman who startled them. Simone March 15, 2013 at 6:26 pm - Reply You’re their pet! Jessica March 15, 2013 at 7:37 pm - Reply That is EXACTLY how it feels… Denise March 15, 2013 at 6:39 pm - Reply Two males together? Hmmmmmmmmmm! Nudge nudge! Jessica March 15, 2013 at 9:46 pm - Reply It’s lovely to see them stick together, but like any couple they have the occasional spat! Anne March 15, 2013 at 7:02 pm - Reply That is such a typical husband photo, catching you from behind!! The birds are beautiful! Jessica March 15, 2013 at 9:50 pm - Reply Note that the photo is an odd shape… it has been cropped! Rose H March 15, 2013 at 8:06 pm - Reply What a glorious photo Jessica! My Mom has an occasional visit from them too, but so far I’m a pheasant free zone ;o) Rose H Jessica March 15, 2013 at 9:53 pm - Reply They are a mixed blessing Rose. It’s great to have them, but they are partial to flowers… Wendy March 15, 2013 at 8:39 pm - Reply They look very tame, very fearless and very at home. Jessica March 15, 2013 at 10:06 pm - Reply I think they would regard it as their home Wendy. The gardener is the interloper! Josephine March 16, 2013 at 1:46 am - Reply What beautiful birds, all three of you ! I could put up with their presence in my garden, better than stone statues… ~Jo Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:13 am - Reply They are beautiful Jo, but stone statues don’t nibble.. I suspect your turkeys and deer do though! Willow March 16, 2013 at 3:44 am - Reply Oh I so miss seeing pheasant ! Rarely do we see them around here unless they have been stocked in one of the very distant hunting forrest and escape to our little farming burb. Love that photos. Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:20 am - Reply There are shooting parties round here too, maybe one of the reasons they congregate in our ‘safe haven’. Heda March 16, 2013 at 5:49 am - Reply And another great picture! Those two boys are gorgeous. Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:20 am - Reply Thanks Heda. They are! elaine March 16, 2013 at 6:14 am - Reply What a great shot – how come they’re not scared of that human who is spoiling the view. Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:25 am - Reply Yesterday they seemed just curious. They were making little clucking noises, not sure what that meant! haggiz March 16, 2013 at 7:28 am - Reply I think it’s worth losing the odd flower head to have those beautiful boys as company whilst you’re gardening. Julie x Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:27 am - Reply I could cope with the odd one too. It’s when they find a flower they like the taste of and strip the whole plant! Denise March 16, 2013 at 9:26 am - Reply I think you have been formally adopted! Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:29 am - Reply It would be nice if they brought the girls around too, and the babies.. oh imagine! BadPenny March 16, 2013 at 9:29 am - Reply Who needs pets with those two around ? Now you just need to teach them to catch mice ! Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:31 am - Reply I have seen one with a dead mouse. Don’t think they hunt though, an opportunistic find perhaps. Sue March 16, 2013 at 10:30 am - Reply Gorgeous birds, I wonder what is going through their minds at that moment. ” You peck her on the bum and I’ll run off with the Fritillaries” ….perhaps 🙂 Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:34 am - Reply Ha Ha! Quite possibly! 🙂 Rosie March 16, 2013 at 11:26 am - Reply It is very kind and thoughful of them to allow you to work in their garden! They may also be saying ‘Grubbs, this way – form an orderly queue!’ I’ve had robins and blackbirds coming close to see what they can find but never pheasants:) Jessica March 16, 2013 at 11:36 am - Reply My usual little robin was well put out yesterday! How lovely to have blackbirds too.. they keep their distance here. starproms March 16, 2013 at 4:11 pm - Reply I think those beautiful birds are interested in your fleece/jumper. It’s the same colour. That is you, isn’t it? They are magnificent. Beautiful colour co-ordination there. Thank you for this lovely picture. Jessica March 16, 2013 at 7:55 pm - Reply It is me, although under several layers of fleece it’s hard to tell. If I took to wearing red ear muffs as well I’d definitely be in trouble.. CherryPie March 16, 2013 at 6:43 pm - Reply At least they were behaving themselves! Jessica March 16, 2013 at 7:55 pm - Reply Precious moments Cherie. Natalie March 22, 2013 at 8:09 pm - Reply What beautiful pheasants!! They remind me of my chickens helping me in the garden. Only MUCH prettier! Jessica March 22, 2013 at 9:21 pm - Reply I love having birds following me around the garden, big and small. The robins are so sweet too, hopping in and picking up grubs almost from my hand (I’ll get them trained yet..)!
