Signs of Birds

When we visited Scone Palace last week, we were impressed by all the peacocks

and we quickly learnt that they should be treated with the utmost respect

On our walk back from Scone Palace to our B&B in Perth, we were amused by the mallards sitting on the fence here

For Signs, Signs

Gorgeous peacock strutting his stuff!

Had to laugh at the Mallards on the deck fencing. Perhaps they don't enjoy 'deep water'! :D

Visiting from the Signs challenge,

Such pretty birds! Guess they have had problems with humans, thus the signs. :S

Anything with a royal looking coat of many colours like these peacocks have should be treated with respect!

And what times of the year would that be?

Friend lived next to two peacocks. One yelled "HUH-ELP! HUH-ELP!" and the other one yelled "ME-OW! ME-OW!"

Peacocks aren't the any things that can be temperamental! Some days a fight with a peacock looks good.
