Peacock Owners for a Day

Yesterday after picking my daughter up at school we drove home to find a peacock resting on our front lawn.  Definitely a first for both of us.  He was very skittish but would come closer when I threw a few handfuls of chicken scratch his way.
He actually got relaxed enough to hop onto our front deck and rest for awhile.
But after a few hours he decided we weren't exciting enough for him and he hit the road heading north.  We checked all the local papers and CraigsList to see if anyone was missing a peacock but there was no one missing their bird. Hope the coyotes don't get him. 


  1. Wow, I hope he makes it home. What a loss for whoever lost him.

    1. Hi Becky,
      A friend of ours about 3 miles to the north saw him, too.
      He's moving fast.
      Would have liked to contain him and run an add for him to find his owners but I found out from our rural route carrier that he and a white peahen showed up at a house about 4 miles to the southeast of us last fall and they fed them both thru the winter. So, he must have lost his girl and decided to roam. :(
