Squawk!

Several weeks ago, while Leslie shopped for bizarre flesh-eating plants at the Los Angeles County Arboretum (located in Arcadia which shares a common, unarmed border with Pasadena), I made video of the peafowl for which the park is quite well known. The results were just too cute not to use in a piece.

When we moved to Pasadena there was a peacock living on our new property. We named him Mister P. He lasted about a year. This piece celebrates one of the several annoyances associated with living near peacocks.

The next time I make a video, remind me to bring a tripod and take more framing shots.

Another picture of Mister P is here. He used to present his full display to the front grille of the Volvos.

and what happened? You eat him? I hear they taste like chicken.

After a while he moved down the street and hung out at the house of this person. We saw him trying to cross the street a few times - probably in search of a good looking hen. We heard later that he had been hit by a car and picked up by animal control.

I would guess that they taste more like turkey. Wild turkey.
