I Heard a Scream

This morning was quiet.

I didn't have to go in to work.

I set off on a walk. an unfamiliar neighborhood.

Suddenly I heard a blood curdling SCREAM!

It was a peacock! Standing on a driveway. Trying to get my attention.

He did a little dance for me.

The pea fowl are actually escaped convicts. They love to break out of the nearby expansive county arboretum and have wild adventures.

Hey! It's Becky Wolfe's birthday on 4/28! Let's go for a visit!

I've always thought of it more as a "Me- oww!" noise.

Peacocks are beautiful birds. We get quite a lot of them here in England.
