Feeders a full of red and blue beauty PLUS Mr. Pheasant is back...~!

This morning I quickly took a picture of the bird feeder right outside my window.. Oh the glorious red, blue and black was just overwhelming . When I was in town yesterday I bought #50 pounds of black oil sunflowers seeds and #50 pounds of cracked corn.. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see>>>>>>

Mr Pheasant was back to fill up on corn and the black oil sunflowers.
He stayed about 45 minutes.. The birds and even Mr. Squirrel shared the same space with Mr. Pheasant. It was fun to watch.. No fighting, no squabbling,
Mr. Squirrel and Mr. Pheasant had words but they still were sharing the food.. I was surprised . I thought Mr. Squirrel would chase away the pheasant..
Mr. Squirrel's tail was flipping, flipping and he was announcing his right to the feeder.. Mr. Pheasant didn't care~ he's the boss and he held his ground..
They are such a beautiful bird... Hope he brings his family with him next time. I was so excited to see him come back to the feeder...
It's starting to snow now and according to the weather man we are headed for some pretty bad weather.
that's O.K. I'm prepared..I'm ready...Let it rip~!
ta ta for now from Iowa...

Oh these are just beautiful. We have a group/gang/group? of pheasants, Mr Pheasant is the pimp of the group and he has his girls...about nine of them. It's great to watch them each morning under the tree outside. Yours however is looking quite magnificent at the moment-very striking colours.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my posts. I really enjoy writing about my mad little life and it is made all the more enjoyable by having such an encouraging and appreciative audience made up of lovely people like you. Thank you for your support and encouragement. I didn't realise when I started blogging that I would meet so many delightful people.
My sincerest best wishes for 2011. May it bring you much happiness and I look forward to visiting you many times.
Warmest wishes
Carol

GREAT photos!!! Glad to see he came back, and I can just see that squirrel trying to flip him off!

Well, now that you have plenty of seed and feed in the house, let the bad snows come in (but stay safe!)

I'm surprised Mr Blue Jay didn't run him off. Our Blue Jays run the Juncos off. Great pictures.
