Good Luck?

So, Marion and I were talking on the front porch and she randomly and quite abruptly stops her train of thought to say, "Did you see that bird on your porch?" At this point, I'm thinking she's just had a long day, the kids, the car breaking down, getting ready to leave...."What bird?" "The one behind you!" I turn around to find.....
Wow. That's unusual for sure. Marion thought it was a pheasant (which is plausible because of the big meadow out back), but my neighbor said today he saw it and got a good look at the tail feathers. They believe it was someone's pet peacock that got loose. Too bad I haven't seen him again - he's gonna be a gonner with all the cats and dogs around here. He may not have good luck, but will we have good luck because we saw him? Maybe our house will sell! :)

I think it's a Golden Pheasant. http://www.centralpets.com/animals/birds/wild_birds/wbd4364.html

It was very crazy how it appeared out of nowhere! But I'm glad that I got a chance to see it. :)

being the major outdoorsman he is, the rockstar nurse was like, 'what? they can't tell a peacock from a pheasant". So i just called him over to see this bird and he started laughing and said, 'what the h#$* is that thing?"

he has never saw one like that before! (i am serious, he seems to know every animal known to mankind...those hunters:)

i showed him marion's link and he agrees with her, it does look like that pheasant. definitely not a wild bird though...at least in this area.
