This beautiful ringneck pheasant was spotted wandering around in a neighbor's backyard. It was not afraid of humans so it is speculated that this beauty was someone's pet and it made its escape. What a gorgeous bird! Photo courtesy of John Ewing.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
