  1. Wow! Great colors. Nice shots John. Too bad the place is no longer around. Looks like you revamped your blog since I last visited. Looks great! I love the new header and the background.

  2. They are such beautiful birds but loud as hell! We were at a park in Tampa looking over at the Hillsborough River and there were 3 of them screaming across the way. All I could think was I’m glad they are not my neighbors and I’m a bird lover! 🙂

    • Thanks, such an amazing bird. Was the first time I saw one in person! You know that Bonnie Springs is gone, right?

        • Yeah, some damn developer purchased the place. The hotel is gone, the saloon -ish building was still there my last drive by. The new homes are sprawling out Charleston Boulevard toward Red Rock Canyon a bit, that pisses me off.

  3. They are gorgeous birds. The peacock that adopted us was taken away by animal control to a place with peacock hens. I’m sure he will be happy with the girls. Our neighbor didn’t like him and called animal control because he was going back and forth between our properties. I had no way to keep the peacock on our property, so animal control found the place with hens, and asked if they would take him before she came and got him. I had asked around with people who had peacocks out here, but they didn’t have them anymore, so we don’t know where he came from.

    • Hmmmm apparently he ran away from his home wherever that was. This was the only time I’ve ever seen one in person, a beautiful bird! It’s vocals are both loud and beautiful.
