    Today our lives, property and, more likely, duck food were at risk as a rogue pheasant from the "wild" swooped in and approached our property. Fortunately an able-bodied militia of ducks was there to enforce the perimeter.

    I moved around to catch a better view of the invader as it was retreating. (Still couldn't get that close).

    If you know this bird call 1-800-BAD-BIRD. All tips will remain confidential.

    That's pretty cool, I've always hear waterfowl are great guard animals especially geese. It's awesome that your ducks did something like that.

    [​IMG] What a handsome chap he was too, I guess he don't know my rogue pheasants that well. From the pic it looks like the enforcements were called out to maintain security I think extra meal worms are in order. medals would likely hurt delicate skin.

    I can see by the army at the fence they mean business. [​IMG]
