Fergus the pheasant


Fergus the pheasant

this little chick was looking for his mum ~ it wasnt easy to persuade him that my shoe was not his mum! eventually he found his way into the long grass where his mum was hiding with the 3 other chicks.

he walked all over my feet yorkshire ~ i was more worried i would tread on him and worse still that his mum wouldnt accept him back

Oh bless him, glad you never stepped on him, just translated that greek writing we were on about this morning, just heard from Alex, I have written it on tets Blog I think, anyway wherever we were this morning, you got rain down there.

yes i found it thanks ~ but i think i must have missed the greek writing somewhere along the line???
yes we have rain ~ its cool and it hasnt stopped all day ~ less now than earlier tho.

go back to her rose picture and scroll down, its Bik, you can then see the greek writing, I have asked Alex the name but she does not know.

How lovely, Sticki, to see these babes . . . wonder if they're tamer where you were staying in Scotland, because fewer inhabitants? Great shot!

30 May, 2011

 

yes i wondered that sheila ~ i dont think they understood to avoid humans?? this one thought i was his mum!

30 May, 2011

thank you jennyfer and sue, i loved him! i expect/hope he is flying around over the islands now!!

2 Jun, 2011

 

How beautiful! Glad his mom was willing to wait for him. He's the adventurous one of the flock...he's probably going to cause her lots of headaches before he's grown!!

2 Jun, 2011

 

i think you may have met him before lori!!!
its probably why i liked him.

4 Jun, 2011

 

No, that wouldn't be so pleasant for a baby pheasant ;o)

4 Jun, 2011

 

Beautiful to look at Sticky but glad it was you not me - I`m petrified of birds.

4 Jun, 2011

5 Jun, 2011

6 Jun, 2011

7 Jun, 2011

 

i wish i still had him here [although that wouldnt be too wise] ~ but he will be flying over the fields, cliffs, hedgerows and beaches of Islay by now!!

he made my holiday tet!! stole my heart away i think.

7 Jun, 2011

 

I can imagine! You do have a soft spot for younglings!

7 Jun, 2011

7 Jun, 2011
