  1. HI Roy I love seeing these birds and these are great shots of it. Yesterday when I was passing the hard surface in the Park that I live near, I saw a Pheasant that I wondered if it had escaped from the cages they ahve in the park for people to see them!!

  6. Another one of those birds that looks like it's been put together by a committee, but it's always worth a photograph. Great sequence of images Roy, it just needs the sound to go with that second from last image!...[;o)
