I came home from work late on Monday. Hubby was already home and had the dog in the garage with him, doing man things. I went in the house, did chores, ate some food, then went out to visit with them. I usually jog or run to the garage, that night was no different.
Then I noticed something odd.
Something was in my yard, no more than ten feet from me.
We both stopped still. It would be a toss-up to see which one of us was more surprised.
Then the poor thing took off running.
Are you curious? Here is who I found:
Yes, you see that right. A peacock. In Minnesota. How cool is that.
My next thought was the poor thing. Nights are already getting colder. I’m guessing it’s not a wild bird, but someone’s pet as they do need care during the cold.
My hubby saw it crossing the road last night again. I hope it makes it home. We’re trying to keep dog in the house as much as possible, so he won’t eat the bird.
What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever found in your yard? We’ve had cats, dogs, mice, snakes, frogs, deer, geese and an assortment of all type of birds, not to mention squirrels and chipmunks up the wazoo. Oh, did I forget to mention a snapping turtle that our dog tried to eat? And now a peacock to finish it off.
