This peahen has been around the garden for the past week. It comes right up to the door and would come into the house if it got the opportunity. Imagine the kerfuffle with a bird this size flying around the house. It has happened with Brush Turkeys and an open door!

I saw something scamper across the turkey's mound and went over to investigate and this fellow hopped onto an adjacent tree. It's a Boyd's Forest Dragon, Hypsilurus boydii. It's been a long time since I have seen one of these on the property, see
