Peacocks on Fair Oaks

This happened about two weeks ago, and I didn't have my camera with me, but I definitely think it's worth blogging about. Thena and I were driving southward on Fair Oaks. While stopped at the light right before the 110, Thena screamed and I was suddenly worried that something had gone horribly wrong. I looked around to see what she was looking at and was amazed to see three female peacocks and one male walking from the east side of the street, clear across traffic, to the west side of the street. There was a young fellow on a mobile phone walking behind them. I couldn't tell whether he was just ogling or whether he was making sure that they didn't get run over.

It's possible they came from the arboretum in Arcadia. I hope they're safe. Did you happen to snap any pictures? Glad you're back, by the way!

Oh silly me, you said you didn't have your camera.

Those peacocks have been spotted in town now for at least 2 years. They generally hang out in the area on south Meridian below Pine street. I saw one the other day on Diamond just above Pine. I love the prospect of these random spottings. How knew?

And here I thought it was the shizzle when I saw a mama skunk with five cute lil babies calmly crossing St. Albans near Huntington... Peacocks trump skunks any day!
