Talking it over: why did the pheasant cross the road?
A large number of pheasants, at times I have counted nearly 50, gather in a field along the tar road on my way into town. That field still has corn stubble left overs from last falls harvest. The pheasants obviously enjoy the leftover feed in the field and peck away steadily. Nearly every morning lately, I have enjoyed watching these birds. However, I am constantly aware that they can, and will, dart across the road unexpectedly.
