We always have turkeys in the yard during the winter, but this year we have some new visitors. So far we've seen three different rooster pheasants and at least 4 or 5 hen pheasants. I guess the guy who owns land across the road from us bought them and planted them. But, they are hanging out under our pine trees and in our tall grass "lane". Here are a few pictures, including one with a rooster right on our deck.

The pictures are not the best quality as they were taken through a window. As I type this there are seven hen turkeys under our bird feeder. There was a bearded hen with a good 4" or 5" beard with the group, but I haven't seen her in a week or so. Closer to spring we usually have a couple toms that will show up in our yard too.

You can bet we'd be having deep-fried pheasant nuggets if Wisconsin's pheasant season was still going on. Unfortunately, it ended December 31. I know a walk down the "lane" (waist high grass and brush piles with trees on at least one side for 40 acres) would produce some action.

Nice being able to watch them from your window!! Seems like a long winter here with all of the snow thus far.

Mr Bruce I heard that you missed when you were hunting pheasants too. Lol

I like this one. I waited for about 10 minutes trying to get a "fly up" picture, but they just stayed on the ground. This guy keeps looking up at the bird feeder..."How do I get more seed down here?"

Very very cool pics bud. Pheasant hunting is one of those things Jason and I have on our list of things we dearly would love to give a try. Hear they're pretty tasty eating too. Posted Image
