Skywatch Friday: Proud as One of these Guys

DSC00096

This fellow was roosting on building right alongside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Saturday morning. There were a bunch of us taking in the splendor of his all-white feathers when he decided to show off and give us the full view. There are some pheasants, quail, and chickens at the live poultry place a few blocks down the hill who probably wish they had his life with security guards, fawning humans, and food without any strings attached.

  7. He was certainly showing off for you. We have some friends with acreage with a couple of these critters. They go roost on the neighbor's house. The neighbors don't mind and I think its kind of funny. The coyotes have left them alone also.

  23. Another WOW to the list! It must have been an amazing sight to see!
    I often think the same way with regards to the birds that fly free and the "others" that live without freedom.
