This is goin' on as I type...
My fambly of peafowl came outa the woods to get some corn for breakfast. Three peacocks, two peahens.
The fambly of squirrels showed up at the same time. Five of them, too.
So the peacocks fluffed all up with their baby feathers, chasing the squirrels while mama and sis got the corn. But the squirrels are FAST. And incredibly persistent. They were runnin' simply everywhere to get by the giant birdies to get at the corn.
Gawd! It is SO funny. I tooken a dozen pics, but I'll just pick a couple. One squirrel is in my macadamia bush. One just went boundy boundy to the pine tree (about a foot up on the right). One is running a quarterback sneak. Lookit:
Note there are squirrels zipping around; there's three in this pic... two are facing squirrels off camera to the right.
Finally, even MAMA Peahen got pissed, and SHE spread her tail (lady peafowl really ain't got the right equipment, but she gave it a damn' good shot!) She is the one on the left
Note that one of the squirrels made an end run, and got up on the feeder... The other four are still running/bounding everywhere tryna get through the birdie-defensive line...
Hilarious to watch.
Gawd. I love Floriduh.
