We were surprised and quietly delighted when we found a Peacock wandering in our back yard - it is 20 acres. What an exotic and beautiful bird - the irridescent colours are just amazing. His tail expanded and held overhead in display is very dramatic.
BUT - it appears a neighbour has decided to let his birds free range, the Peacock spends most of his days here, with up to four hens. They eat every seedling that pops its head up in the vege garden, they graze on spinach and capsicum leaves and scratch through the mulch on the garden beds.
The owners are away at the moment and I wish the birds would just go home.
