These 2 ladies visit me every morning at my office door. Sometimes their boyfriends follow but they seem more timid than the females. These two will come inside if I let them!
Love them but not their presents they leave behind Smile

How delightful for you! I'd love that! Timid boyfriends can be a blessing! LOL

I can't quite tell - but is that a pea hen?

Lucky you!

Yes JC, they are peahens.

On nice days I open my door for the fresh air but I have to watch her. She will come in the office.

So are they just free roamin' birds or are they someone's backyard birdies? I once had a road runner get in the house, not fun!

it would be nice to have the company in your office.. but not the 'presents' she would leave behind. are they tame enough for you to pet them?

Cute! I agree, the presents aren't all that pleasant! Big Grin

They belong to the neighboring landowner. I can't pet them and not sure I want to. He says they bite. Some times if they are nearby and I leave the office they will let out a loud shriek. I must startle them but they nearly give me a heart attack! I'll never get use to that sound. Our other neighbors have a plastic owl displayed on their porch to keep them away. I'd just as soon rinse away their presents with a garden hose rather than not having them visit at all.
