As we were rounding a curve, three large birds ran to the side of the road and up a bank.
My husband got out, thinking they were partridge, but then motioned for me to come with my camera....
I climbed the bank and snuck up on the birds.......
And saw THIS:
Here is a close up of the bird's (ahem!) behind:
Here is one more picture to help you.
He thinks he is hiding from me!
I think he is rather handsome!:
(The picture is a tiny bit blurry, sorry!)
It was great seeing them out there in the woods, I hope you enjoyed meeting them too.
