Not your typical wildlife...in Southwest Ohio!
We heard a strange sound coming from the woods....
it sounded like the woman in dispair on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery.
Hoping to find something as fabulous as one of Edward Gorey's illustrations we went on a hunt...carefully & warily. I figured it wasn't a coyote...which is pretty much the only thing that really scares me around here.
There was a rustling in the bushes & a big flash of blue feathers!
And then there it was!!! In all it's glory!
I'm puzzled why there was a peacock in our woods, but figure that somebody must keep it as a pet.
It was very vocal... "Awwwk~!" ...it hollered at us as I rapidly snapped a few quick photos!
