We've had a different sort of wake up call around the prairie farm lately...a Ring-necked Pheasant rooster has taken to enjoying the yard for it's many attractions...bird feeders and lady pheasants, etc.
The rooster likes the high vantage point of the roof of the root cellar. He sits in the sun and preens, puffs up, and crows! This makes for a great alarm clock as his perch is also just below the bedroom window!
An added bonus with a rooster pheasant is the whir of wing beats when they cut loose with their "crow"...an added drum line to accompany his performance, if you will.
