Big Bronze Cock

"A big, bronze cock? Where?!?"
 Ha! Made you look!

 Yes, as you no doubt suspect, I shan't be showing off that sort of cock (I shall leave that to Peenee, Maddie or The Very Mistress).  Rather, a far more showy example in bronze and red and blue that is a regular visitor to the gardens of Hexenhäusli Device.  But, before we get to him, here are some new visitors from this morning: a pair of red-legged partridges. 






And here he is, the big, bronze cock pheasant himself, showing off his plumage:

  1. Awwwwww, isn't he grand?!
    I've had them in my garden too. Obviously attracted by the big pink bush.

  2. I agree with Scarlet! Stunning! It made my whole day already to see your cock and other bits. I sure we wish had partridges. I think its so cute they stay in pairs...maybe you'll have little partridges soon???

    Now the pheasant we have as well as wild turkeys...but they seem to be more visible in the summer and autumn here.

    1. Well, I wouldn't show off my cock to just anyone, but for you (and the rest of the Blogorati), I thought I'd make an exception.

      Some baby partridges would be delightful! I hope the pair above do come back.

    1. We get them as well - great, lumbering oafs - but it really was a wonderful surprise to see a pair of partridges in the garden.

  4. Goodness, it's like living inside a game pie.
    As it happens I count remote viewing of cocks among my abilities and your secret is safe with me x

    2. That doesn't mean I'm not going to tell everyone you have absolutely *nothing* to be ashamed of. Nudge nudge wink wink!

    3. Well, I'm not ashamed to admit that I encourage that big cock into my back garden, so tell away!

    1. They look quite magnificent all puffed up and standing to attention, don't they?!
