In the Brilliant Morning Sunshine —Wednesday, April 28, 2021

This handsome fellow is often seen.   This part of the farm is HIS.

There are at least three more males in different areas of the farm, but I don’t always see them when I am out and about.

I haven’t seen his ‘girl’ or ‘girls’, but I’m sure they are there.  🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



The “Wilderness” of the Farm — Thursday, April 15, 2021

If you look close — here in the brief, surreal daylight of early morning is a bevy of Gambel’s Quail 

I love their songs and calls. 

Their darling little feather on their head 🙂

Then further along, just over that wee knob is one of those gorgeous male pheasants

We have several here and there—staking out their own area of the farm

He is silent and careful until 

You stumble upon him then his call is most acute and totally startling to all

It’s courting season right now

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh There she is…His Girl!

From my world to your heart,


P.S. Of course there is more bird and wildlife, but for now, this is a start.
