Speedsters and Freeloaders

One of several male ring-necked pheasants seen and heard regularly all year round. The hens are less showy and certainly much quieter. Pheasants prefer running to flying and are said to have been clocked up to 60 mph!
Brown-headed cowbirds feeding near Badger, who must have been stirring up insects. Cowbirds are called "brood parasites" because they don't nest or raise their young, but instead sneak into the nests of other species to lay their eggs. 
“I know every bird of the mountains,
and the creatures of the field are Mine.”
–PSALM 50:11
