Percy is finally strutting his stuff!

Since the middle of last week, Percy is now putting on a show several times a day. He hops up on the back of the rollback truck and prances by my window! Pretty soon, he starts fluffing his tail....He starts to strut back and forth........

and shows off his behind first with all those downy feathers on his back
and then will turn and show the full display! He prances about..for quite a while like this.....

turning every which way to make sure we see him!
We are still having a great time with people who come in and say "did you know there is a peacock out there?" LOL and, others "where is the peacock?, I brought the kids!"

Meanwhile, we will just keep feeding him.....and now there is talk of a pea hen!

I had meant to ask if there is a pea hen on the premises. There are peacocks and hens here on the grounds of Laguna Gloria - the Art Museum of Austin. Gorgeous creatures they are, but noisy.

I didn't know you had a peacock - does he belong to you? I've always wanted one. :) There are some at the farm over the hill and sometimes we can hear them cawing.

No, we don't have a pea hen. The boys are trying to talk me into getting one.
Summer--the peacock just showed up one day at the welding shop where I work. We have no idea where he came from, but he likes us!

Go, Percy! Go!


He is obviously having fun and has an appreciative audience.
