Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Handsome visitors

These two handsome fellows came strutting through our yard, pecking here and there, and nervously looking around at the slightest noise. They should be nervous, as they have been released for the hunting season. I wish they would be smart, and stay on our property, where they would not meet any hunters.

Such beautiful colors on those feathers. I too wished they would stay with you until the season ends.
Hugs, Gail

oh fingers crossed they survive. We live next to a large estate and I hate it when hunting season is in flow and you hear all the guns. They are lovely birds - bit stupid, but lovely :)

Hi Jennifer! It's a great shot! I love their colors!

Grace said...

Oh, I love these pretty birds. Are they pheasants? How could anyone shoot them? I wish them a long and prosperous life.

keewee said...

Yes Grace you are correct, they are Chinese Ring neck pheasants.

We used to see pheasants around here all the time.....haven't seen one in ages. I need to get out more!
