Not what it looks like.
They aren't, they are called red jungle fowl and the are wild. According to Wikipedia " The Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) is a tropical member of the Pheasant family, and is widely believed to be a direct ancestor of the domestic chicken."
Sure was interesting seeing them wandering in the jungle.

Happy Earth Day
Meet Bob the Racoon
He looks like a very small bear wandering around the neighbourhood.
He's a little camera shy so I couldn't get him in profile.

A pile of piles.

Sorry, but I enjoyed that.

What’s this yellow cap for?
She said it with a straight face.
I maybe partially colour blind but even I know this is red.
Anne didn't realize she had said yellow instead of blue. With her sense of humour I couldn't be sure if she was messing with me or if it was a slip of the tongue.

A Sunday ride. Look closely.
They told us that the dog is happy to ride this way, it is always looking back to see where it came from.

Anne managed this shot in a high wind. I don't think it heard the car until we were closer than usual

As Seen On TV, or maybe in New Zealand
Seen in the washroom of the bar at Southseas Hotel on Stewart Island New Zealand.
To answer the question before it is asked, No I don't take a camera to the washroom, I had to go back and get it.

The view is really good from up here.
Sounds like the start of a joke.
Pair of map turtles.
After unseasonably warm weather we had snow flurries this morning, thunderstorms last night. No such thing as climate change, right?

Tastes like chicken
I never saw the appeal of eating rat, musk or otherwise, snails, turtle (endangered) or other "game".
And who was the first guy to decided that a lobster looked good enough to eat?
My grandfather was from Scotland. Over there porridge in a sheeps stomach ( haggis) is high cuisine. For desert you can have a deep fried Mars bar.

Yellow shafted flicker
You can see the main field marks, the red on the back of the head, the dark bib and the moustache of the male bird. The yellow feathers are in the underside and can't be seen in this shot
