Today’s my birthday so I thought I would commemorate it by trying to get a photo of my “Zodiac Bird.” You can find yours here. I succeeded but this is the time of year they are molting (I just found out today) so they don’t spread their plumage much. I was hoping for a more dramatic shot…and maybe finding a feather but neither of those worked out.
There were several Peacocks at historic, pretty Sahuaro Ranch in Glendale.
I’ll have to go back in the fall when it’s a lot more pleasant and they have their feathers again.
And there were Peahens, too, of course.
They were in the shade. I was the only one dumb enough to be out in the sun. There were also some bonus birds ~ Helmeted Guineafowl:
