Pheasant spotting

This is weird... but I only just realised that in nine years in the USA, I had not seen a pheasant... until about 15 minutes ago.

He came strolling out of the phragmites on the William Floyd Estate side of Park Drive. And now that I've seen him, I realise that I have been hearing him quite often.

(This is NOT a signal for a whole herd of you to come rushing over here hoping to make pheasant pie for dinner tonight... he has gone back into hiding now!)

The birds are pairing up. The Canada geese are flying and swimming two-by-two. I saw one turning somersaults in the creek this morning... spring is on its way!
