Mr. Fancy Pants!

While I am not done with the New York City posts yet I just had to post these photos of a rooster I saw on the back roads of Norridgewock, ME this weekend. My sister-in-law, Rita, and I went out birding together on Saturday. Little did we know that this rooster would be one of the best shots of the day. I have no idea what breed it is but we cracked up at those puffy bloomers! This domestic bird made me smile. I hope it does the same for you!

  1. Not your typical birding, but certainly a beauty.

    1. Gaelyn, you know me... a bird is a bird but I do prefer the wild ones. I love chickens though but do not want to have to take care of them or any other caged bird!

    1. I thought so and the hens following him around seemed to think so too!

  6. Phew! That's impressive. Maybe it's all just fluff but man, those would make some meaty drumsticks...

  7. Was this a bad hair day or is he wearing his 'elephant costume to the fancy dress ball'. What a job preening and remembering which feather goes which way!

  8. Oh, he is quite the fancy pants! I love him! And it almost looks like he has long eyelashes too! What a great rooster!


    Glad your Mom is doing well! I know she was glad to have you there.

Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
