Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

Peahens and Peacocks

April 2015

We’ve had an invasion of sorts….a far east, invasion.  Exotic? … Yes …. Beautiful? …. Yes …. Loud, chicken feed loving, and hard to capture by cell phone photography? …. Yes, yes and yes!!

April 2015

I think it’s mating season!!

April 2015

Our neighbor’s Peahen hangs around our back patio area…many times sitting at the glass door, almost as if she is saying, “Can I hide out for awhile?”

But, the boys call out to her….and she hides in the grass….



The boys seem to know where is…..

April 2015

They climb the waterfall as their instincts tell them that they are getting closer…

April 2015

Ms. Peahen is well hidden…she has gotten as low as she can in the tall grass…..

…well, maybe not in this picture….but, you can’t see her at all in the next picture….and the boys searched…

April 2015

…and I believe that they peacefully found each other, or they didn’t…either way, they disappeared.  Maybe in a couple of months or so we will see something like this again…..from 2014….

I hope you enjoyed our little far east invasion……

Please have a wonderful, wonderful Sunday!!

Your friend from Oregon,

  1. That’s fuuny how she hides out. I never saw that video from 2014 with babies very cool. How do you get the longer video to post. I had a couple I tried to post on FB and YouTube and tried also to e mail it to myself from the phone. But every time I got failed because video too big

    • FB has limited capacity, but I have found I can get a longer video on YouTube. The videos I post on this blog are uploaded to Word Press. I’ve been able to post pretty long videos here.
