Cat! Cluck! Cat!
Pheasant in upper left of photo
I was sitting at my desk, which looks out into the fields to the west of my house. I heard a “Cluck. Cluck. Cluck.” Its tone sounded like the pheasant but I am used to hearing him crow not cluck.
He was just standing, long-necked in the middle of the mowed area under my hanging feeder. Something was different.
I went at once to the screened in porch and saw Slim, for the first time, relaxed and taking an interest in being on the porch. It explained the pheasant’s long-necked stance and his clucking, immediately!
The pheasant clucking and standing there sure explained her interest.
